CENTRO at the 116th St Festival

Location: The Silberman School of Social Work

Event Organizer: Center for Puerto Rican Studies


June 10 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm EDT

Join us on Saturday, June 10th at 10 AM EST for the 38th annual 116th Street Festival! This festival will take place on 116th Street and Third Avenue, and will feature live music performances, community art, and food influenced by Puerto Rican and Hispanic culture. The 116th Street Festival started in 1985 as ‘Abrazo Fraternal’ (brotherly hug) and has grown to encompass 20 blocks. On the day of the festival, you can hear the sounds of Latine music and smell the aroma of mouthwatering hispanic dishes down Third Avenue.

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be tabling at the festival, so be sure to stop by to learn more about CENTRO and meet some new and familiar faces! You can also catch the new season of Puerto Rican Voices, Season 5, inside the Silberman School of Social Work. For more information on the 116th Street Festival, visit their website here.

After the 116th St Festival, catch us marching down 5th Avenue for the National Puerto Rican Day Parade
