SAN ANTONIO – You can relive Dia De Los Muertos Fest on KSAT on Wednesday.

KSAT crews were at the festival on Saturday, Oct. 28 and KSAT will air a special broadcast of the festivities from 8-10 p.m. on Nov. 1 on KSAT12, on KSAT.com’s KSAT+ page and on our free KSAT+ streaming app that works with most Smart TVs.

Muertos Fest at Hemisfair is San Antonio’s largest Día de Los Muertos festival.

The 11th annual free festival took place on Oct. 28 and 29.

Muertos Fest was previously named one of the seven best fall festivals in the U.S. by National Geographic.

During an announcement of the musical lineup, Mayor Ron Nirenberg said the festival has grown tremendously over the past 11 years. In 2022, about 130,000 people attended Muertos Fest.

“It’s going to grow every single year, it’s going to be even bigger this year, especially in our new space here at Civic Park,” he said, calling it an “important” tradition. “We want San Antonio to be the spot on the map in the Americas where people can see that tradition come to life.”

Visitors enjoyed live music, dozens of altars honoring local families and loved ones who have passed on, workshops and a vendor market.

There were also sightings of the new KSAT mascot Mic!

The musical lineup included:

  • Ozomatli
  • Mariangela
  • Santiango Jimenez Jr
  • Campanas de America
  • Eddie and the Valiants
  • Bidi Bidi Banda, and more.
