Dia de Los Muertos Festival at Mission San Luis Rey

What a wonderful opportunity to visit the Historic Mission San Luis Rey AND join in the annual festival of Dia de Los Muertos.

The Festival use to be downtown in Oceanside near the pier. Now the last few year it has grown to draw such large crowds it has moved to the historical Mission San Luis Rey.

The festival is a tradition to celebrate the life of your loved ones who have passes away. It is a day of great joy and happiness.

Come down to the Mission today and learn about a culture  you may know little about or come and celebrate the life of your loved ones who have passed.

  1. Record crowd! 25,000 people came out to celebrate. They made alters out of the trunks of their old vintage cars, had Folklorico Dancers, music and great food too.
    If you missed the festival you can still visit the Historical Mission San Luis Rey for Tours. The history, art, grounds and exhibits will capture your interest and bring you make many times to see what you have missed
