The only place I know of that has a schedule as such is the outlying barrio of S Andrés Mixquic, which is famous for its DoD celebrations. Details are on its official website: http://www.mixquic.com.mx

You'll find ofrendas all over the city, especially in the zócalo.

Every "Delegacion" has it's own activities for the Day of the Dead.

I personally prefer the one in Coyoacan, seems very traditional and lots of activities (altars in the main square, nightime bands playing, the Feria of Pan the Muerto in Jardín Frida, the house of Culture runs also activities).

But other boroughs like San Angel, Tlalpan and also Iztapalapa have a range of activities.

Here is the guide for this year (in Spanish though...):

Hope it helps!
