37th Annual Mexic-Arte Celebration: 9/18 – 11/22
Since 1984 when the Museum presented its first Day of the Dead exhibition, La Muerte Vive (Death Lives), this exhibition pays tribute to the tradition that celebrates the return of the dead by their families and friends on October 31 to November 2.  
Virtual Día de los muertos Celebration with the MACC Center
The ESB Mexican American Cultural Center is proud to present Día de Los Muertos. This year for the first time, they will present a digital event that anyone can view for free from a computer, tablet, or phone! Sign up by for their take-home DIY sugar skull and marigold kits below.
Pan de Muerto for Día de los muertos
Many families celebrate Día de los muertos with ofrendas (altars) and pan de muerto (bread of the dead). We recommend picking up pan de muerto from Mi Tradición or La Mexicana.

La Casita

La Casita is great for lunch & dinner in North Austin. They also have mariachis on the weekends for brunch!

Checko’s

Cheko’s on 2222/Koenig is a great choice for breakfast classics. It’s a cozy spot so get there before the morning crowd!

Mi Tradición

Mi Tradición is another South Austin gem. Their bakery rotates items frequently and offers treats that meet every dietary need.

La Mexicana

In South Austin, we recommend La Mexicana. They have great authentic Mexican baked goods & breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Lima Criolla

Lima Criolla is a Peruvian restaurant in the Linc that is perfect for practicing your Spanish skills. They also have excellent ceviche!
