Why a Parade for Día de los Muertos? We believe that the more people know about other cultures in our communities, the stronger our community will be. Cazateatro wants to be the bridge between Latino and non-Latino communities using the Latino arts and traditions. Cazateatro’s signature program is our Day of the Dead Parade & Festival. Cazateatro, in collaboration with Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and Overton Square.
This festival has inspired people from many different cultures to participate and learn about Mexican and Mexican-American culture. Families are invited to remember and honor their loved ones who are no longer with us. That moment we forget that special person who was part of our lives is when they really die.
The festival is free to the public and family-friendly. It features a variety of local vendors, art-making activities, face painting, music, food, costumed performers, and dance performances.
