DISCUSSION
The City Manager’s Office of Special Events and Filming will be organizing the 2022 Día De Los Muertos Celebration hosted by the First Council District on November 5, 2022, utilizing the wonderful settings of the downtown waterfront and Pine Avenue. Día De Los Muertos is a cultural staple within the First District and one that creates a sense of community within our Latino Community as well as our downtown neighborhoods. This year’s Día De Los Muertos celebration will be larger than before, attracting thousands of attendees to engage in the variety of activities provided.

The estimated cost of this wonderful event is planned to go beyond the normal $35,000 allocated in the City Manager Department’s annual budget, with costs potentially going up to a total of $130,000. The First Council District is allocating $95,000 of its One-Time District Priority Funds in support of this event with the intent to engage in fundraising efforts to cover this cost. If funds are raised, an equal amount, up to $95,000, of District Priority funds allocated to this event through this recommendation will be returned to the First Council District One-Time District Priority funds. Also, if the additional funding needed for the event turn out to be less than the $95,000 being allocated in this recommendation, the funds not needed will be returned to the First Council District One-time District Priority funds.

This item has been reviewed by Recovery Budget Officer Dee Okam on September 25, 2022.
