Attendees are encouraged to bring a memento or picture of their family and friends who have passed away to add to the community altar.
The festival will include many traditional elements and will be focused around art. The event will include artists, vendors, crafts for kids, face painting, live entertainment and food trucks. Attendees are encouraged to come dress as a Catrina/Catrin (artistic skeleton lady/man representing death) and enter a costume contest held during the event.
