Virtual 2020 Puerto Rican-Hispanic
"The Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade" to be held on Sunday, June 7th, 2020. 12pm to 3pm (Rain or Shine)
The 54th annual Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade will kick off at noon …
rain or shine … on Sunday June 7, along 5th Avenue in Brentwood.
This iconic and family-friendly cultural celebration is the largest of its kind in the State (outside of Manhattan), attracting more than 50,000 spectators and 3,000 marchers along with floats, music and dancing galore. It brings together not only the many different Latin American and Caribbean cultures, but also embraces non-Latino participants in a demonstration of solidarity.
This year’s celebration of the human spirit will include Puerto Rico’s resilience and the best of humanity in the face of multiple natural and man-made disasters.
Teatro Yerbabruja, the Parade organizer for the past several years, is a nonprofit arts organization that facilitates socio-economic development on Long Island, particularly in its core “triangle” service area of Central Islip, Brentwood and Bay Shore. Its other activities include the programs in and planned for its Arts Center in Bay Shore; and its public arts project, annual street festival, and other services planned for Central Islip, whose downtown area is undergoing revitalization.
