2021 Day of the Dead Parade Route

Mexico City's 2021 Day of the Dead Parade begins at 12 noon on October 31.

The parade begins at the Zócalo, leaving from the northwest corner. Participants will proceed through a traditional Archway being built specially for these celebrations.

The parade will proceed for 8.7 kilometers along Avenida Hidalgo, and then onto Paseo de la Reforma. The entire spectacle will last about 4.5 hours.

The landmarks along the way (listed below) are simply to help international visitors to orient themselves.

Important: This parade, unlike the more usual parade route, runs in the reverse direction, from east to west.

Those attending are reminded to maintain social distances between parties, to use hand gel when frequent handwashing is not possible.
