National Puerto Rican Day Parade

Set in The Bronx, “El Condado de la Salsa,” The National Puerto Rican Day Parade has hosted this annual cultural event since 1995 where we welcome all families to join us in celebrating the Puerto Rican culture.

This family event is a fun fun-filled day offering a variety of entertainment for people of all ages. The day features live musical performances, dancing, comedy, celebrity appearances and a children’s pavilion scheduled with storytelling, face painting, arts & crafts, and other fun surprises!

Kiosks line the street with corporate and local vendors selling comida típica (traditional food) artisans displaying and selling their art and many free giveaways.

The 152nd Street Cultural Festival is the kick-off celebration leading up to the Parade on 5th Avenue.

I am K'jachamallku Paucar with a lot of humility, knowing that I have weaknesses, knowing that I have many things like all of you but, at the same time, we can also learn together, we can learn from each other. I want to share something with all of you, that the problem of the world is not our problem, that the external problems does not compete with us, changing the world is not our duty. If we want to change the world, it’s better to change ourselves, to begin with ourselves.
