Day of the Dead Festival – Is A Success!

We are proud to announce that Plaza Fiesta was the host location for the second annual Day of the Dead Festival in Hendersonville, NC. A letter from the organizers:

Friday was one of the most successful cultural events the center has ever organized. The second annual Day of the Dead Festival was supported by so many – volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, food donations, flowers, toy donations, media advertising…the list goes on and on. We were able to grow on a beautiful tradition.

Thank you for donating your time and talents and being part of this special night.

  • Approximately 600 community members, children and families came out to enjoy the night!
  • More than 100 toys were raffled (free) to children
  • A Mexican Cultural tradition was shared through folkloric dance, music, altars and food
  • More than 24 community sponsors, local agencies and businesses!
  • All our sponsors were promoted in several ways: flyers that were distributed at the Flea Market, churches, organizations, ESL classes, etc; newspaper, facebook and during the event (passports, information tables, announcements).

Games, face-painting, altar, sugar skulls, delicious food, costumes and good conversations and friends made this a night to remember. We look forward to next year!
