Community Altars

Día de los Muertos will transform the Moody Amphitheater stage into a community “ofrenda,” or altar, where visitors are invited to place images and decorations that honor their families and friends who have passed. The community ofrenda will be designed by local Tejana florist Yliana Lara, an artist and community activist.

Guests can remember beloved departed pets at a special Alebrijes Altar, supported by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and designed by local artist, Ernest Ramirez.
