Día de los Muertos is a very special time, when once a year, the spirits of loved ones who have died return to earth to celebrate this holiday with friends and family.
This event celebrates the unity of life and death, considered by many to be the most important holiday of the year in Mexico and other Latin American countries, although it is observed in Portugal, Spain, Philippines, Italy, France, Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Croatia, Austria and Germany, just to name a few!
The premier Day of the Dead event in San Diego County, Old Town San Diego's Día de los Muertos, is designed to celebrate the history, culture, and heritage of the region.
Old Town's legacy has a predominance of Mexican, Spanish, and Native American, and as a general melting pot, makes it the best site in San Diego to hold this special and beloved celebration. Remember the Old Town San Diego's Día de los Muertos is all about the history, culture, and heritage of the holiday. Please note, this event is not a street fair.
