México City Day of the Dead Parade 2018

The México City Day of the Dead Parade is scheduled for Saturday, October 27, 2018. It marches from Estela de Luz to Zócalo (the main square) from 11 am – 4 pm. FREE

Beware, dates and start times may change without notice. The Parade may start hours late.

On Parade day, people line up from the early morning. As in any big city, tourists are prime targets for petty crime. Be safe, but enjoy the spectacle of life.


The 2015 James Bond movie ‘Spectre’ opens with a Day of the Dead parade staged in El Zócalo, México City’s main square. It inspired a real Mexico City parade starting in 2016.

The Spectre parade was pure fantasy. Nobody celebrates Día de los Muertos like that. It is a family tradition. Some decry its commercialization. But it sure looks cool.

Mexico City anyone?
