Dia de los Muertos Fiesta with Latino Memphis (Giveaway Ended)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | October 19th 2017 1187 0

This year, Latino Memphis will again host their Dia de los Muertos Fiesta. I have a pair of tickets to give away to the party, so read on to find out how to enter. Congrats to our ticket winner, Courtney Knowles!

The 2017 Dia de los Muertos Festival is on Friday, October 27 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at The Columns downtown. Tickets are $50 online in advance or $65 at the door, plus you’ll need to buy a bar pass (more on that below).

HOW TO ENTER

If you want to enter to win a pair of general admission tickets (you’ll need to buy your own bar pass) just leave me a comment saying that you want to go. I will do a drawing on Monday at 3 p.m.

A Few Things You Should Know About The Dia de los Muertos Festival

They’ll have tons of festivities, including:  

– Aztec dancers
– folkloric dance group Herencia Hispana
– Hip-hop meets Salsa performance by New Ballet Ensemble & Salsa Memphis
– sugar skull-inspired face painting
– food bites
– handmade flower-making stations
– photo booth
– Mariachi Guadalajara
– music by DJ Moi
– Catrinas by Cazateatro Bilingual Theater Group

Getting In

There will be two entrances to the event, which is in a new location this year: The Columns at 1 Commerce Square.

1.  Entrance on Monroe off Second St. Use this entrance if you are getting dropped off by LYFT or UBER or a friend.
This entrance will close at 9 pm. Guests can still get to the party using the entrance below.

2.  If you are parking at the One Commerce Square Parking Garage, take the elevator to the lobby and enter through the lobby. This will serve as the only entrance after 9 pm.

Bar Passes – VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO DRINK AN ALCOHOL

I’m just quoting directly from Latino Memphis on this:

You won’t even miss having a full bar with our selection of 4 signature drinks and craft beer available at all fiesta bars.
Cash will not be accepted at the bar so buy your pass ahead of time. Tickets required for all drink purchases.
$20 bar pass (includes 4 drinks)
$10 bar pass (includes 2 drinks)

Attire

Wear your fanciest black and white outfits – this is not a Halloween party, so be sure not to wear Halloween costumes.

Giving Back

Latino Memphis is an important local nonprofit that provides support, education, and programming for the Latino community and the city at large. They host an annual Latino Memphis Fest in May, this Dia de los Muertos party in October, and periodic other events. This party is a fundraiser for the charitable organization.
