Waterloo Greenway
Who We Are:

Waterloo Greenway is a 1.5-mile park system with the power to bring the entire Austin community together. Once complete, the 35 acres of connected green space – meandering from 15th St. along downtown’s eastern edge to Lady Bird Lake – will be home to a wild array of natural and cultural destinations.

Join us on November 1 & 2 as we celebrate Día de los Muertos at Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park!

Our free two-day celebration includes community altars, cultural activations, live music, dance performances, and more!

Community Altars

Día de los Muertos will transform the Moody Amphitheater stage into a community “ofrenda,” or altar, where visitors are invited to place images and decorations that honor their families and friends who have passed. The Moody Amphitheater ofrenda will be designed by local Tejana florist Yliana Lara, an artist and community activist. Guests can remember beloved departed pets at a special Alebrijes Altar, supported by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and designed by local artist, Ernest Ramirez.

Live Music & Dance Performances

During both days, attendees can enjoy free live music and dance performances from Mariachi Corazon de Tejas, Ballet Folklorico MariCruz, Danza Azteca Guadalupana de Austin, DJ Pos Guau, and DJ Abe the Assassin, presented by Lalo Tequila.

Family-Friendly Activities

Bring the whole family to enjoy children’s hands-on activities, including Calavera Face Painting presented by Dell Children’s Medical Center. Additional onsite community partners will include Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, Avance, Con Mi Madre, Todos Juntos, Latinitas, and MAS Cultura.

Visitors can also enjoy live artists Carmen Rangel and Ruben Esquivel featured throughout the event.

Food and Artisan Vendors

Support local businesses by visiting Latinx craft artisan booths and food vendors. Guests can also visit the Dos Equis Beer Garden to enjoy themed cocktails and snacks, as well as non-alcoholic beverages.
