The award winning event is back and more monstrous than ever!

About the Project

Presented by the Downtown Arts District, the Dia de los Muertos event is a fun-charged block party that celebrates the traditional Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos & Halloween. In conjunction with the block party, CityArts Factory turns into Monster Factory, exhibiting works of art inspired by Halloween. Every year, more than 5,000 people gather on Pine Street to experience art, live music, delicious food, and live performances.

Some entertainment includes:

- Live Music from Ka Malinalli (Hispanic Folk music) and O Mi Lasa (Salsa music)
- Original Artwork by Local & National Artists themed in Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) & Halloween
- Macabre Cirque Performance by Phantasmagoria
- Readings by Shaman Kiyen

- Kids Craft Area from 6pm-8pm Hosted by the Downtown Arts District’s Young Artist Group & Sam Flax
