Oct. 28, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Mexic-Arte Museum is thrilled to announce its annual Viva la Vida Festival on October 28, 2017 from 12:00pm – 8:00pm in downtown Austin. This year, Austin’s largest and longest–running Day of the Dead event features a grand procession and street festival (from Colorado to Brazos) with artist vendors, live music, food trucks, and community altars. Art activities for children and families are available in the neighboring Frost Bank Tower Plaza, where the public will have an opportunity to take pictures with parade props, including large-scale moving sculptures and mojigangas.
Mexic-Arte Museum remains open during the exhibitions of Diego and Frida: A Smile in the Middle of the Way, and Love to Death: Dia de los Muertos Community Altars.
The 2017 event is co-sponsored by the City of Austin.
