Dia de los Muertos Festival

October 24 - 31, 2021

The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Annual Festival is a free, outdoor festival that celebrates the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale neighborhood. In honor of our 26th Anniversary, and to mark the tumult caused by the pandemic, we are guided by the festival theme of Curando Corazones (Healing Hearts) to create a physical space where people can safely gather and hone in art and culture as tools for community healing.  

This year, Unity Council is bringing back the online Muertos Mercadito (marketplace) to purchase crafts from local artists and vendors, as well as other DIY activities, workshops, and an in-person event on Sunday, October 31. Learn more about the event here.

Fruitvale Restaurant Week

In celebration of Oakland’s Dia de los Muertos Festival, participating restaurants will offer a special menu available from October 24th through 31st, enjoy your tried-and-true, or discover a new favorite along our International Blvd. corridor. However you choose to dine, you will be supporting a Fruitvale small business during this much-needed time.

¡Celebremos juntos!
