Last December, Puerto Rico/Puerto Ricans: Parades and Festivals brought together key members of organizations throughout the United States that organize Puerto Rican parades and festivals to examine and gain a broader understanding of how they promote Puerto Rican culture and heritage, and how they can work together towards this goal. Puerto Rican parades and festivals have long played an integral role in engaging our communities across the United States. They help to establish our presence and promote our shared cultural identity.
A recommendation from this event was to create a Parades, Festivals, and Cultural Celebrations Directory that could facilitate collaboration and support. If you wish your organization and/or cultural celebration to be listed in the directory, complete the form below. Should you have questions, feel free to contact the Centro Outreach & Partnership Team at (212) 772-4348.
