Visit Fort Worth is excited to partner with several Hispanic organizations to celebrate this year’s Día de los Muertos. The Day of the Dead, a cherished holiday that originated in Mexico, is a time to remember and honor deceased loved ones. Through art, music, food and community gatherings, Fort Worth will come alive with the spirit and warmth of this ancient tradition.
This year, the holiday will be marked by vibrant parades, traditional ofrendas (or altars), sugar skull face painting competitions and festive events in the Historic Stockyards, Sundance Square and the Cultural District. These events foster an appreciation for the rich cultural significance behind the Day of the Dead, showcase Fort Worth’s diverse celebrations and strengthen multicultural community.
