Catch Centro at the 35th Annual Loisaida Festival! After a 2 year hiatus, the festival is back on with this years theme of “Taking it back to our streets! – ¡Regresando a nuestras calles!”, highlighting the return of the festivities to Avenue C – renamed Loisaida Ave. in 1987. This conic community celebration will bring on music, food, education, arts and culture, both local and international, directly to our community. Come learn more about Centro’s latest projects and see new and familiar faces!

Since 1987 the Loisaida Festival has been the largest community celebration festival event in Lower Manhattan, and grows annually in size, excitement, and impact. Produced by Loisaida Inc., founded in 1978 and one of the last remaining Puerto Rican community organizations in the neighborhood, the Loisaida Festival epitomizes over four decades of the struggle and success of the Puerto Rican/Nuyorican diaspora that settled in the Lower East Side as had thousands of immigrants and migrants over the 19th and 20th Century.
