Celebrating 37 years of community and sharing to the beat of live music, dance, activities for the family, we invite you to be part of Feria del Barrio 2021! (Feria). After needing to cancel last year’s festival as we needed to switch to an all-virtual celebration, we are counting on the current realities to allow us to celebrate in person. Scheduled for Sunday, September 19, 2021, we promise the event will again be a celebration of community, arts, and culture, education, and economic development in the Golden Center. Come and enjoy a family-friendly fun event supported by TV media partner Telemundo62 and our corporate partner PECO.
We hope the circumstances will allow us to meet in person, having sponsors, tables, vendors, and lots of activities for children and adults alike. We feel strongly that we want to reach our community with an event that brings us together as a community.
We are also taking the opportunity to honor three local heroes we lost this past year, and whose commitment to community service makes us proud.
Feria is a collaboration between Taller Puertorriqueño (Taller), Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM), Congreso de Latinos Unidos (Congreso), HACE, and Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas (Raíces).
Since 1979, La Feria del Barrio has celebrated Latino culture, family, and the economic and educational aspirations of the people of North Philadelphia with:
- Live Latin music and dancing
- Latino food
- Art and crafts
- Much, much more
FERIA has increased opportunities for artists, promoted civic engagement, attracted new audiences, and built new relationships with other arts and community organizations. It has also helped create an environment for improved economic and commercial activity. Since Feria del Barrio happens in the heart of Latino Philadelphia at El Centro de Oro, the business and arts district, its economic benefits impact this corridor and community directly. The partner organizations keep FERIA a family-friendly destination with activities for children and entertainment for all ages.
Without support from local businesses, vendors, and corporate sponsors FERIA can’t go on. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, FERIA organizers clean the streets, move tables, set up booths, etc., costing much less than other such festivals. We have developed respectful relationships to guarantee a safe, family-oriented, and trouble-free event that benefits the local community and attracts new visitors to the area. For FERIA to succeed it must rely on all our supporters. As a corporate sponsor or vendor, your business can capitalize on and be part of the strength and pride that Latino arts and culture bring. And with your aid, we will sustain and increase the growth of the North Philadelphia community. FERIA has hosted thousands of guests each year–and this year will be better than ever.
