About Feria

Feria del Barrio has been a long-standing festival in the heart of our neighborhood. The 2022 Feria is scheduled for Sunday, September 11, 2022 from 12-6pm, on North Fifth Street between Huntingdon and Somerset Streets. Last year we hosted an in-person Feria that brought the community together to celebrate and socialize. Feria promoted the work of the many community organizations that have continued despite the challenges of the pandemic, and it was a space where artists could share their creativity and talents. Feria is central to our community, and we are excited to celebrate again in 2022. We hope you will join us at the famed El Centro del Oro (the Golden Block) as the community gathers to enjoy a family-friendly outdoor celebration with artists, performances, vendors, and more. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Now in its 38th year, Feria is presented and produced by Taller Puertorriqueño in partnership with Asociación de Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM), Congreso de Latino Unidos, HACE, Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas and the TV Media Support of NBC10/Telemundo62 and La Mega Nation. It is the largest event presented by a coalition of organizations dedicated to promoting  art, culture, education, health, economic development and community. Feria is a well-known and attended event, rich with culture and opportunities for businesses and organizations to reach the community.

The History

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.
