Dia de los Muertos at Bazaar del Mundo
Join us at Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town for Dia de los Muertos, where we will pay homage to the dead with elaborately decorated altars, sugar-skull decorating and face painting.
As part of Old Town San Diego’s Annual “Tour of Altars,” produced by the Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO), Bazaar del Mundo will transform its shops into a walkable trail of altars, complete with traditional sugar skulls, handmade papier-mâché decorations and special Day of the Dead-inspired clothing and crafts.
Children and families can enjoy a face painter and a sugar-skull decorating class (Saturday only; noon to 6 p.m., small fee applicable). Hot chocolate, mini churros and coloring sheets will be available for the children, while historical handouts will be provided to adults. Neighboring Casa Guadalajara will have authentic Mexican cuisine for sale and live music will be performed by TINKU.
The event will take place Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1 and 2 in the Bazaar del Mundo courtyard.
