Puerto Rican Day Parade
Join hundreds of spectators on the streets of Philadelphia for a day of music, dancing and fabulous floats during the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade.
Running over 50 years strong, the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade is the city’s oldest and largest outdoor event celebrating Puerto Rican and Latino heritage.
Hundreds of performers, local celebrities, youth groups, and more march up the Benjamin Franklin Parkway during the annual parade before ending at Eakins Oval near the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The annual parade is organized by the Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations of Philadelphia (Concilio).
The huge Puerto Rican Day Parade includes reps from youth groups, community organizations, schools, corporate sponsors, popular artists and other groups around the region, all of whom will come together to showcase Puerto Rican and Latino culture.
The procession starts at 16th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, ending in Logan Square.
After the parade, the party continues with a fun-filled festival at American Street and Lehigh Avenue.
The event typically attracts around 1,500 marchers, more than 5,000 attendees and approximately 96,000 viewers who watch the parade live on television.
