Art contest

The Dia de los Muertos Festival art contest is an integral part of the culturally rich and vibrant celebration. Leading up to the festival, artists from the surrounding area are encouraged to participate by submitting artwork that reflects the essence of this cherished tradition. These diverse submissions are then prominently displayed in a dedicated art exhibit during the festival.

The festival committee plays a crucial role in recognizing these outstanding contributions, and will select winners for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Those talented individuals are not only acknowledged on the festival stage but are also presented with a cash prize. Additionally, the artwork for 1st place will be used for the festival's promotional materials the following year.
