Families of all ages will enjoy cultural performances, arts and crafts activities, delicious food, and art vendors, and the events signature sunset procession led by “Las Flacas”, the 8-foot-tall animated skeleton puppets, that kicks off a celebration dance party with live music by QVLN and Orkesta Mendoza! Different from other more commercialized Dia de los Muertos events, MIKIZTLI is known in the Valley as a truly authentic cultural celebration. Each year, attendees are encouraged to bring photographs of their loved ones and gifts or offerings to add to the community altar. The event concludes with a traditional candlelight procession from the community altar, in which attendees are welcome to join and remember their loved ones who have passed. Spotlighting the connection between indigenous cultures throughout the Americas, MIKIZTLI will feature performances by Danza Mexica, Indigenous Enterprise, local native artists, giant puppets, Quetzalli Ballet Folkórico, Mariachi Rubor, with a finale performance of global cumbia beats by Arizona’s own internationally known musicians QVLN and Orkesta Mendoza!
