Saludos, Parade Family!

The history of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade is one of cultural awareness, resilience, pride, unity, and education, rooted in the spirit of activism, freedom, and justice.  We are proud that this legacy remains alive and strong today, six decades after the Parade’s founders first marched in New York City, in 1958. 

We welcome groups interested in participating in the celebration to form contingents and submit a participant application form so that all can lend their voices to celebrating our culture and heritage while collectively shining a light on the issues and challenges that are impacting Puerto Rico and our people.  This is an opportunity to act in solidarity and speak with a unified voice while celebrating our community’s achievements and contributions to our global society.

On Sunday, June 11, the National Puerto Rican Day Parade will span 35 city blocks, featuring the best in Puerto Rican music, dance and culture. An estimated 1+million participants and spectators will join the celebration.


We welcome you to join us as a contingent participant to the parade.
