Dia de Los Muertos Festival

Saturday, November 6, 2021


Come celebrate Dia de Los Muertos in Downtown Norcross on Saturday, November 6, 2021 as we observe the holiday that spans across the first two weeks of November! We invite you to join us to celebrate our ancestors and history in a night of remembrance, dance and live authentic entertainment to be followed with a parade around Thrasher Park. This festival will be a total cultural experience where you can immerse yourself in celebration through authentic Mexican meals and beverages.

Be sure to drink the night away with us as there will be exciting flavors of margaritas to drink throughout the festival (to be purchased separately). There will be face painters on-site to help you complete your festive look with candy skull painting. At dusk, we will wrap the festival up with a lantern parade around Thrasher Park. We will be selling lantern kits from anywhere between $5—$25 that you can purchase on-site the night of or before the event on Friday, October 29th and Friday, November 5th between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Norcross Welcome Center.

We look forward to celebrating culture, history and the community with you this November 6th!
