Each year, Concilio hosts the Annual Puerto Rican Festival Parade, a vibrant event which has been woven into the Philadelphia fabric for many years. The parade is a celebration of Puerto Rican culture in our Philadelphia community, and each year it follows a particular theme.

2017 Theme: «The Rhythm of Our Culture/El Ritmo de Nuestra Cultura”.

Participating groups get the opportunity to display this theme the best that they can and to put their cultural pride on display for friends, family and members of the community. Held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Puerto Rican Festival Parade typically has around 1,500 marchers; more than 5,000 attendees; and 96,000 tune in to watch live on 6ABC. The winners of the parade are announced at a closing ceremony held at Concilio several weeks after the parade is over.
