For 27 years, the annual Oakland Día de los Muertos Festival has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors to the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale neighborhood for a free, outdoor, family-friendly event taking place to commemorate the Mexican traditions around the Día de los Muertos. Festival attendees enjoy world-class live music, family-friendly games, rides and activities, traditional Latin American artisans, and the stunning altares created by community members paying homage to los Muertos.
The Deeply Rooted Oakland General Plan team led by The Unity Council (TUC) & Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ) have teamed up to build and dedicate an altar to honor Essential Workers and ensure that their voices and desires are included in the planning for a more resilient and flourishing Oakland that benefits all.
