uwishunu About the Puerto Rican Day Parade…

Apparently, it's gone mainstream.

Each year for nearly three decades, Philadelphia’s Latino community has come together to celebrate its rich history and culture and on Sunday, September 18, from noon–5:30 p.m., the celebration returns during the 27th Annual Feria del Barrio.

Happening in one of Philadelphia’s thriving Latino neighborhoods, along 5th Street from Cambria to Lehigh, this free, family-friendly event will feature crafts, activities, games, music, food and performances throughout the afternoon.

There will be more than 100 local merchants selling crafts and wares, and 50 different artists who will sing, dance and perform throughout the event.

There will be traditional Latino cooking, an appearance by Miss Puerto Rico, hours of performances and a grand finale by salsa singer Adriel Gonzalez.
