The Biggest Latin Festival in the North-East
116th Street Harlem
New York, NY
The globally recognized and biggest Latin Festival in the North East will be returning on June 9th, 2018, for its 32nd Celebration. The 116th Street Festival will host various music, fun, art, and food influenced by the Puerto Rican and Hispanic culture, with an added extra spark of excitement as the festival celebrates its 33rd year celebration.
Event-goers from around the country are expected to gather at this year’s festival, which anticipates more than 200,000 guests. People of all ethnicities and backgrounds are welcome to join in the fun, learn about Hispanic culture, and enjoy a family friendly outing.
The 116th Street Festival started in 1985 as ‘Abrazo Fraternal’ and has grown to encompass 20 blocks, and on the day of the festival, people for miles will hear the sounds hispanic and various music and smell the aromas of mouthwatering hispanic dishes. The famous festival continues to bring an economic advantage to the neighborhood as well as offer a communal atmosphere for hispanics and anyone who wishes to learn more about the fun-loving culture that boasts decadent music, food, and more.
The 116th Street Festival offers various performances, new and classic Hispanic foods, and a fun, electrified atmosphere that will be amplified by the added celebration of a third decade of the festival.
Aside from musical performances, this year’s festival will honor multiple acts with a Talent Recognition Award for their continued support in the arts.

The History Of the 116th Street Festival
The 116th Street festival was started in 1985 as a block party under the name 'Abrazo Fraternal' by David and Robert Acosta; two businessmen from El Barrio. Nick Lugo also joined the festival to lend his expertise and from there the festival continued to grow each year.
In 2004, Peter Spinella joined in helping to promote the 116th Street Festival which has now grown to 20 Blocks and is a celebration of not just the Puerto Rican community, but of El Barrio and all of the Hispanic cultures. Each year hundreds of thousands of people come to celebrate this historic event in the heart of East Harlem. This year will be a special celebration of our 30th Anniversary. We look forward to having you join us!
