The Day of the Dead Dome

If great tequila, plus the vibrancy of Mexico, sounds like fun then head to the Jose Cuervo Day of the Dead Dome, taking place for just two days on November 2 and 3 in the city centre.

Located within the SKYCITY Carnaval Festival, the Dome encapsulates the colourful culture of Mexico and brings to life the country’s annual Day of the Dead celebration, held to honour and remember the souls of lost loved ones.

A bespoke margarita bar will allow visitors to commemorate the dead, and delight in the living, by creating and customising their own Jose Cuervo margarita.

When not sipping on margaritas, or enjoying authentic cuisine from the Dos Amigos food truck, guests can enjoy music from the likes of Ari Jade, play Mexican games, create their own flower head garland, or go all in and opt for some face and body painting.

Jose Cuervo’s Day of the Dead Dome is R18 and takes place on Friday, 2 November and Saturday, 3 November and is free to attend.

There’s also an opportunity for guests to win one of five double passes to Splore festival. What’s not to like?!

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
