Event Details


Dear Friend,


We would like to cordially invite you to be a part of the sensational 19th Annual 2014 Fruitvale “Día de Los Muertos” Festival as an exhibitor. The celebration is scheduled for Sunday, November 2, 2014 from 10am to 5pm at the Fruitvale Village and along 12th Street to 37th Avenue in the Fruitvale district of Oakland, California.


The purpose of the Dia de los Muertos Festival is to bring together the community to celebrate our traditional cultural experience featuring talented artists, unique craft vendors, retailers and informational service providers. In the Fruitvale Village, colorful dance troupes and musicians will perform! Every year the highlight of the event is the sacred altars and memorials. As one of Oakland’s largest community events, the festival attracts people of many ethnic groups from all over the Bay Area. Thousands of visitors attend each year’s festival that celebrates our cultural traditions, the arts and artisans.


This is a tremendous opportunity to reach the general public and reach shoppers who are looking for unique crafts and gifts. The event features children and family activities and promotes local artists that represent the rich mosaic of cultures in the Oakland and the Greater Bay Area. This year, there will be a limited number of booths and spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. Enclosed is a new contract that can be returned with necessary documents via fax or mail. Please read your contract carefully and initial in the spaces required. If you sell anything, sell or give away food, you must have all the appropriate permits. This is your responsibility with the appropriate government office. The festival management does not process permits! Permit information is provided later in this document. Also, if you sell or giveaway food, you must use the Festival Food Vendor Application. Don’t delay because spaces go very quickly and we are limiting the number of exhibitors this year.


The Fruitvale community welcomes your participation. Call or e-mail us if you’d like to obtain info on presenting an altar or if you need more information to participate as an exhibitor. Please contact our Dia de Los Muertos office- at (510) 535-6912 or email at dreyes@unitycouncil.org


Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to seeing you at the event.
