Less than 200 years ago, the Greater Phoenix area was part of Mexico. Today, Arizona’s Hispanic community makes up almost 4% of the entire nation’s Hispanic population.

These roots have flourished in Greater Phoenix’s communities and — in unison with the rest of the country — we honor the heritage in celebration.

Events, installations, concerts and eateries like DTPHX Lotería, Fernando Botero: The Master, The 24th Annual Mariachi and Folklórico Festival, and Barrio Café beautifully highlight the reason for the season. Día de los Muertos is also largely celebrated in the Greater Phoenix area, with dedicated events, concerts, and festivals occurring from mid-October to early November.
