NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – The Greater New Braunfels Chamber’s Hispanic Business Alliance is hosting the 3rd Annual Dia de los Muertos Festival on Saturday, October 27 from noon to 10:00 p.m. in downtown New Braunfels. This is a free community event highlighting Hispanic culture including local food, drinks, arts & crafts, vendor booths, shopping and live entertainment.

The Dia de los Muertos Festival is fun, but it also takes a lot of hard work from amazing volunteers. Volunteers will sign up for shifts to work during the festival doing everything from set-up to tear down and selling drink tickets to picking up trash. If you would like to sign up to be a day-of volunteer, please visit

This year’s event will be even bigger and better than the last two years with extended hours and the introduction of a Kids’ Corner and kid-friendly activities including a sugar skull class, storytelling time, and a flores de papel class, among others. There will also be a community offrenda, mariachis, art exhibition, several contests, two stages with live music and more than 50 vendors, including food trucks.

Dia de los Muertos is expected to draw thousands of residents and visitors to downtown New Braunfels. The festival is FREE to attend. For more information, visit
