Day of the Dead Altar Tour and Procession

Day of the Dead

November 4, 2023


Get in the Spirit.  Discover Magic. And, experience the unforgettable spectacle of Tubac’s annual Día de los Muertos celebration. Also known as “Day of the Dead”, Día de los Muertos is the tradition of celebrating and sharing memories of loved ones who have passed.

Ofrendas, or altars, are set up by many in Mexico and southern Arizona and adorned with items that the dead enjoyed while they were alive. In the procession, trunks of cars were set up showing off ofrendas with pictures to honor dead family and friends accompanied with drinks, sweets and bread that their deceased loved ones used to enjoy.

Whether this is your first time hearing about Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos and are new to the tradition or you participate every year, everyone is welcome to commemorate this celebration of life in Tubac.

The procession and schedule will be posted in October 2023.  To be added to our email list, send an email to
