Mexic-Arte Museum presents the FREE Viva la Vida Fest 2010: 27th Annual Día de los Muertos on Saturday, October 23, 2010 from 2:00 – 10:00 PM at 5th Street (between Congress & Brazos). There will be prelude events in the Museum from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM. FREE ADMISSION!

Mexic-Arte Museum, the Official Mexican and Mexican American Fine Art Museum of Texas, is celebrating its 27th Annual Día de los Muertos – Austin’s largest and longest-running Day of the Dead festival featuring Latino artists and entertainment, educational art activities, and a grand procession in the heart of downtown. Part of the proceeds benefit the Museum’s education outreach programs.
Viva la Vida Fest celebrates life and our environment through art and culture, using the traditions of Dia de los Muertos. The festival brings together a diversity of people in Austin to pay homage to friends, family, and heroes. The festival features a grand procession followed by a costume contest and a street celebration with:

* natural and organic Mexican and Tex-Mex foods and beverages
* hands-on art activities & artist demos
* local artist and retail booths
* spectacular, larger-than-life props
* live music and dance performances!

To make the festival eco-friendly, Mexic-Arte Museum encourages all participating artists and festival-goers to create their props out of recycled, re-used, and sustainable materials. The Museum is also committed to leaving a smaller footprint on the environment by reducing waste and minimizing energy wasted. The event will not only encourage environmentally conscious artistic creations, but it will also promote eco-friendly living, healthy eating, and exercise through cycling and walking. The theme of this year’s festival will be the Bicentennial of Mexican Independence and the Centennial of the Revolution. We encourage all to come dressed as Pancho Villa, Emiliano Zapata, Miguel Hidalgo, Adelitas, or your favorite historic political figure from Mexico!

At Plaza Saltillo:

* Pre-Procession Festivities 12:00-4:00 PM
* Grand Procession 6:00-7:00 PM (gathers at 5 PM)
