Each year countless organizations and groups in San Antonio pay tribute to the deceased in observance of Dia de los Muertos. At Esperanza our Dia de los Muertos celebration occurs every year on November 1st at the Rinconcito de Esperanza (816 S. Colorado).
Each year in addition to the Dia de los Muertos celebration, the Esperanza presents Day of the Dead workshops and activities for community members to learn the various aspects of the holiday. The Esperanza aims to train other community members on how to make ofrendas/altares, paper flower, and sugar skulls -all of which are vital pieces of the Day of the Dead celebration. Workshops are open to all ages. Supplies are provided to participants.
Guests are invited to join the San Fernando cemetery tours covering one of the oldest cemeteries in San Antonio with a history dating back to the mid-1800s. Visitors can also stroll through the streets of Guadalupe as we unveil new photobanners as part of our En Aquellos Tiempos Oral History project.
