152nd Street Cultural

Get Involved in the Culture 

152nd Street Cultural Festival

Set in The Bronx, “El Condado de la Salsa,” the National Puerto Rican Day Parade has hosted this annual cultural event since 1995 where we welcome all families to join us in celebrating the Puerto Rican culture.

This family-friendly, fun-filled event is FREE to attend and offers a variety of activities and entertainment for people of all ages. The day features live musical performances, dancing, celebrity appearances, and a children’s pavilion scheduled with storytelling, face painting, arts and crafts, and other fun surprises!

Kiosks line the street with corporate and local vendors selling comida típica (traditional food), artisans displaying and selling their art, and many free giveaways.

 The 152nd Street Cultural Festival is the kick-off celebration leading up to the Parade on 5th Avenue.
