The National Puerto Rican Day Parade is America’s largest cultural celebration. ¡WEPA!
We march to show how proud we are of our people and our culture, support scholarships for exceptional students of Puerto Rican descent, and share our culture with our children.
This information is based on our 2019 celebration. Check back in December 2019 for updates.
