The Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade Inc. is held in the summer, and it is usually the first major activity held in the Bronx. Since it occurs early in the year, citywide local colleges, high schools and elementary schools can join the well over 100 participating organizations marching down the famed Grand Concourse.
Additionally joining us along the Grand Concourse are our corporate sponsors, local small businesses, national/state and locally-elected officials, community members, unions, as well as city and state agencies with local, community-based organizations.
Over the past thirty-one years the Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade has grown from a few small groups to international organizations, sponsoring culture activities and nurturing relations with cultural groups from throughout the nation. With the contribution of Businesses and Corporations, we have been able to provide scholarships to the our participants, thanks to our friends.
