June 12 @ 11:00 am 5:00 pm EDT

Join us on Sunday, June 12th at 11 AM EST for the 65th National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP)! In this yearly in-person event, the NPRDP will highlight Puerto Rican culture, achievements and legacy with music, dance and colorful displays of cultural pride before an estimated 1.5 million spectators. After a mandatory two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the NPRDP Board of Directors is thrilled to announce its big return to New York City’s Fifth Avenue. The 2022 parade is dedicated to the municipality of Cidra, Puerto Rico, which is known as Pueblo de la Eterna Primavera (Town of the Eternal Spring) as well as the Greater Philadelphia Area, which is home to over 250,000 Puerto Ricans statewide. The NPRDP serves to unite approximately 8 million Puerto Ricans living across the 50 states and Puerto Rico in cultural pride and tradition, and we’re so excited to join them this year! This event will be taking place on Fifth avenue and spans from 43rd Street to 79th Street, be sure to keep an eye out for us, as we’ll be marching alongside our fellow Puerto Ricans in the parade. We hope to see you there! For more information on the NPRDP, click here to visit their website.
