Day of the Dead Festival

Held outside on Hickory and Industrial streets, Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival captures the very essence of Denton’s artistic spirit: a true collaboration of the eclectic art and music community that only the northernmost tip of the golden triangle can provide. As is the artistic scene in this ever growing “little” town, Denton’s DOD Festival is a wonderful smorgasbord, paying homage to many of fall’s treasures such as cooler weather, the harvest, the celebration of Dia de los Muertos, and all things Halloween. It harkens to an earlier, simpler time, when communities gathered outdoors to celebrate life through song and dance, good food and drink, and camaraderie. The festival includes Denton’s original Halloween Cabaret Cirque du Horror, as well as Denton’s very own coffin races and a lantern-lit twilight parade. There is also the Twilight and Costume Parade, with illuminated lanterns, glowing costumes, and blinking bikes. Bring your decorated cars, trucks, and floats. Slap some lights on a musical instrument or a drum and march. Take kids on a stroll through the pumpkin patch, where you’ll find a variety of carnival games, craft projects, a bounce house, and puppet theater. Costumes encouraged. Free admission.
