What is DIA Fort Wayne? 


Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of the lives of friends and family who have died. 


Día Fort Wayne is a spirited Dia de los Muertos celebration held in downtown Fort Wayne, IN.


Starting at 11am, we sing, dance, laugh in celebration of the lives of friends and family who have died. All are welcome.  Free family activities, calaca face painting, live music, entertainment, food, a giant altar and more!
