Spend the weekend celebrating Día de los Muertos with delicious dinners, markets, cocktails, and more at City Place in Spring from Friday, October 28 to Sunday, October 30, 2022.
City Place, the community and shopping hub in Spring, celebrates Día de los Muertos with a weekend of events that features free family and friend gatherings, markets, extravagant meals and more.
Friday Night: The 4-Course, Chef-led Black Dinner
The weekend festivities get rolling with the return of the Black Dinner, which features a four-course wine dinner crafted through a collaboration of acclaimed chefs Arnaldo Richards (of Houston-based Picos), Omar Pereney, and Mexico-based chefs Luis Robelo Richards (of Tout Chocolat) and Atzin Eduardo Santos Candia (of Limosneros).
Limited to 100 guests, the sit-down dinner is preceded by a special cocktail hour, Catrina face painting and flower crown crafts, and a candlelight procession at sunset that unveils City Place’s traditional ofrenda to honor departed loved ones.
Seatings are $150 per person, but special rates are available through an overnight stay at the City Place Marriott.
Saturday Night: Calacas & Cocktails
And on Saturday night, guests can enjoy the height of the celebration at the Calacas & Cocktails event presented by the city of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.
Attendees can see live music and entertainment, sip on margaritas from the on-site cash bar, and take part in the second night of candlelight processions—all available at no cover. Though for $30, VIP guests will have special access to a poolside canopy at the adjacent Houston City Place Marriott, where they’ll receive a complimentary cocktail and other craft goodies.
Día de Muertos Markets & Movies
In addition to the weekend’s marquee events, City Place also will host an all-day El Mercado on the Plaza from noon to 6pm on Saturday, where guests can shop a curated selection of Latin folk art vendors and artisans doling out goods in accessories, art, jewelry, clothing and more.
Then, the festivities wrap up on Sunday evening with a Family Movie Night that features a screening of the 2014 animated musical film, The Book of Life, with complimentary face painting and kids activities.
