Day of the Dead: It’s To Die For!

It began as a small women’s remembrance in 1990, and has expanded to become one of the most famous and diverse Día de los Muertos events in the country. The All Souls Procession is the highlight of the Day of the Dead celebration in Tucson. Every year, over 35,000 people make the two mile journey through the heart of Tucson, including many U of A students, faculty, and staff.

You’ll find elaborate floats in the parade, unbelievable costumes, and traditional Day of the Dead makeup. From masks to sugar skulls, tequila rituals to dancing in the streets, it’s the ultimate autumn festival. This year, it’s taking place on November 7th and 8th near hotels in downtown Tucson. Visitors who are lucky enough to be in Arizona during this auspicious occasion will find endless opportunities for fun, remembrance, and making memories.
