Dia de los Muertos

Last Updated on January 30, 2024

As part of the San Antonio River Authority’s commitment to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers, special events are provided throughout the year that are free for the community. Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday that is also celebrated in many Latin American countries and among Hispanic American families that honors and pays respect to loved ones who have passed.

Read along to learn how the River Authority plans to celebrate this sacred holiday and make plans to join with your loved ones!

Día de los Muertos Celebration


This year, we invite you to spend Saturday, October 30, 2021 on the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River Walk, which offers an engaging urban park as the river flows by public art installations, the Witte Museum, the San Antonio Museum of Art, a culinary and cultural destination at the reimagined historic Pearl, and the oldest VFW Post in Texas, which is open to the public! The River Authority will honor the Día de los Muertos holiday from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon when Mariachi Los Galleros de San Antonio and Las Monas Performance Group will be on river barges playing traditional Mexican music and performing with large Catrina puppets dancing to the sounds of drums. This free entertainment will be provided to those strolling by the Museum Reach trail, and the celebration will also be broadcasted live on our Facebook feed, so make sure you follow our social media channels to tune in!
