Día de Muertos

November 6 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

For the first time ever, the traditional Day of the Dead Festival, organized by the Consulate General of Mexico in Atlanta and the Institute of Mexican Culture, will take place at historic Oakland Cemetery!

Visitors of all ages will learn about and experience a Day of the Dead festival. Guests will enjoy traditional dancing, crafts, authentic Mexican food, and entertainment. They can also view a display of altars decorated with flowers, food, and beverages honoring lost family and friends.

Dressing up for the occasion is encouraged! There will be a Catrinas and Catrines Costume Contest with cash prizes for the first places (kids and adults). Registration for this contest will be at the festival entrance.

PARKING: Our two parking lots will be closed to the public during the event. We encourage guests to take Uber, Lyft, MARTA, or carpool. King Memorial MARTA station is just a short walk from Oakland. Inman Park, Candler Park, and East Lake stations all have plenty of free parking.

Admission is free.

Please note: With the exception of service animals, pets will not be allowed at the Day of the Dead celebration.

Vendor application & information on altars:

Presented in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico and the Oficina de Enlace GTO-Georgia.
