Dia del los Muertos Giant Puppet Parade

SAN Arts Program & the San Diego Guild of Puppetry

In a continuing effort to further enhance the San Diego International Airport experience for the traveling public, the SAN Arts Program will offer a special Terminal 2 performance by the San Diego Guild of Puppetry in celebration of Dia de los Muertos. 

Every season the SAN Arts Program Performing Arts events provide a unique platform to celebrate San Diego’s local culture. The region's diverse talent is presented in dance, theater, and live music, through an ongoing concert series, special performances, and our Performing Arts Residency program. 

The San Diego Guild of Puppetry has been creating giant puppet parades in the community since 2004 and its Dia de los Muertos puppets are the creations of Felix Diaz, his family, and his students.
