Luna Mexicana

Celebrate Dia de los Muertos with us!

Luna Mexicana is one of the Bay Area’s most elaborate and inclusive Dia de los Muertos events. Like the celebration that inspires it, Luna Mexicana is a beautiful blend of exuberant dance, joyful music, colorful costumes, flowers, candles, food, and – most of all – celebration of family.

Check back summer 2023 for performance dates and venues!
