Hollywood Forever Day of the Dead Festival

The famous cemetery Hollywood Forever Day of the Dead Festival, a.k.a., Dia De Los Muertos, always coincides with Halloween.  This truly is one of the most unique events of the season. This year, the event takes place on Saturday, October 29th from 12pm-12am.  A favorite visit during our private tours of Hollywood, the cemetery will be closed to the public a few days prior in order to set up the stages and for the elaborate altar construction for participants in the annual contest.

Performing on the main stage this year, look for Mariachi Flor De Toloache, Buyepongo, Julietta Venegas, Alejandro Y Maria Laura, and Mitre.
