A celebration of Latino culture in the heart of the city’s streets. Traditional Latino music, poetry, and dance make this vibrant festival a must-see event. Held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Puerto Rican Parade typically has around 1,500 marchers; more than 5,000 attendees; and 96,000 tune-in to watch live on 6ABC.    

 Theme: “Renacer de Puerto Rico” – The Rebirth of Puerto Rico

On September 16, 2017, the island of Puerto Rico was struck by Hurricane Maria, leaving its infrastructure completely dismantled. Since then, Puerto Rico’s road to recovery has been met with optimism by its natives and those across the world who refuse to become disheartened by their home’s current state.  It is important to highlight the resiliency of a culture who’s motivation for revival is exponential in the rebuilding and reconnecting of their community. Concilio hopes to honor the people of Puerto Rico this year for their strength and commitment to each other and to their roots. Renacer Puerto Rico, the rebirth of Puerto Rico.
