This is a highly unique opportunity for artists, dancers, musicians, festivalgoers, students & families alike to come together for a celebration of Latino culture.

This FREE family-friendly event will commence at 10am and continue until 4pm. 75+ vendors, musical performances, a symbolic procession, beautifully decorated altars, food and more will be a part of the day’s festivities.
The festival will be located on the Mission grounds for a second year with support from many of the same partners from prior years.

Guests can participate in honoring their own loved ones with a chalk cemetery memorial to be decorated with flowers and candles. Por Siempre Car Club will present a special showcase of classic cars for all to enjoy. This year each car will create a unique ofrenda within the car.
