    39th Annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration

    Come celebrate with us 39 years of celebrating one of the most colorful and meaningful traditions!

    Since 1977, Centro Cultural has opened its doors to tourists and residents to take part in the biggest and oldest Dia de los Muertos Celebration paying tribute to this ancient tradition.

    Centro Cultural Aztlan celebrates the Annual Dia de los Muertos with a group exhibition of Altares y Ofrendas on November 2nd. Community artists are invited to create altares in our gallery and help facilitate a dialogue that examines the history and traditions of this cultural festivity. This event illustrates the artistic, cultural and religious facets of this popular pre-Columbian/Mexican tradition where death is seen as a natural part of life and this reality is approached with gaiety and humor. Photographs of loved ones grace altars as well as offerings of food and other things associated with Dia de los Muertos. Marigolds, incense, and candles celebrate life. The entire gallery is transformed into a giant installation that is a sumptuous feast for the senses.

    Opening reception Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 6-9 p.m.

    View our exhibit of “Altares y Ofrendas” by community artists and students, enjoy Pan de muerto, Ponche de frutas, and other treats as you visit with friends and shop for special Dia de los Muertos creations from some of San Antonio’s most talented artists and artisans in our “Avenida de los Artesanos."


    Be prepared to dance when the drum rhythms of the Carnaval de San Anto dance troupe arrive to lead us in danzas choreographed for the festive occasion! Suggested admission: $3

    Exhibit can be viewed Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. until Nov. 9, 2016.
