Denton's Day of the Dead Festival

E. Hickory and Industrial Street

Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival is a free, family-friendly event held outside on E. Hickory and Industrial Street. Spirits will be high as we celebrate the fall season, paying homage to the goodness of the harvest, Dia de los Muertos, and all things Halloween. You’ll enjoy it right down to your bones.

Take your kids trunk-or-treating, peruse the pumpkin patch, enjoy games and activities for all ages, knock ‘em dead in the salsa cook-off, dance alongside street performers, and pick up a souvenir at the vendor booths, featuring local art, crafts, and food. Cheer on your favorite team during the famous coffin races, and stick around for our lantern-lit twilight parade. But whatever you do, don’t miss your chance to see Denton’s very own Halloween musical, Cirque du Horror.
