8th Annual Dia De Los Muertos Parade & Festival

The City of Long Beach annually holds a Día de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, Celebration in cooardination with the First District City council office honoring loved ones who have died.

The celebration traditionally includes a family-friendly celebration of culture and tradition featuring colorful cultural attires, dance, food, arts and crafts, and world-class music. Día de Los Muertos is deeply rooted in the traditions and cultures of the indigenous communities of Mexico and Latin America. As family, friends and neighbors continue those traditions in ways that are most meaningful in their lives, the City encourages the entire community to also come together for this grand celebration in downtown Long Beach. The celebration will be held on Saturday, November 4, from 11am to 12:30pm on Pine Avenue for the Grand Parade, a free fun-filled celebration of this honored tradition. The Grande Parade will feature grand marshals, a variety of culturally rich performances and floats, and participation from various City departments and community partners, among other elements. The parade will also stream live on the ABC7 Los Angeles’ digital channel followed by an on-air broadcast on ABC7 Los Angeles Sunday, Nov. 5.

This year’s celebration will include the City’s festive street parade, coinciding with an Arte y Ofrendas Festival at Rainbow Lagoon that will go well into the evening, hosted by Grand Parade Dia De Los Muertos Inc. This family-friendly event will feature arts and crafts, music and entertainment, and food and beverage offerings, from noon to 10 p.m. For more details about the Dia del los Muertos Grand Parade visit longbeach.gov/diadelosmuertos.
