National Puerto Rican Day Parade

April 10, 2017


The National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) is the largest demonstration of cultural pride in the nation. This year marks the 60th Anniversary of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. We are proud to share that the Puerto Rican population in Cleveland and Lorain, Ohio is the stateside community to be honored at this year’s Parade. The Ohio NPRDP Committee is excited to share that there will be two events happening this April in partnership with local libraries and the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) at Hunter College. The Centro Voces documentary film crew will be recording stories to capture historical information and highlight the stories of our Ohio Puerto Rican community.

Members of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board of Directors and its Education Committee will be in Lorain and Cleveland to discuss the upcoming festivities, answer questions on this year’s program and share a special presentation on the Puerto Rican Studies Cultural Ambassador Program. In anticipation, we invite everyone in our community to share stories of their families’ experiences, as well as what it is like to be a Puerto Rican in Northeast Ohio. This is the Cleveland event page. There is also a Lorain event page and we encourage everyone to attend one of the sponsored events and indicate if you’d like to share your story and a bit of your neighborhood’s history. Also, please feel encoured to share with friends or family members you believe would like to participate to attend one of these two events. Thank you!
