Festival Santiago Apóstol De Loiza En El Barrio, commonly known as the Loiza Festival in El Barrio, celebrates the African influence of Loiza, Puerto Rico in New York City. The festival was founded by Los Hermanos Fraternos de Loiza. Now in its 49th year, with an intergenerational team of organizers, the summer cultural event attracts a wide range of artists, craft vendors, and community leaders. With food vendors, artists’ showcases, and interactive arts and crafts workshops for children, the festival welcomes all communities. If you want to have a blast creating child-friendly arts and crafts, listening and dancing to live beats, and/or savoring Latin cuisine, this festival is for you! Plus, it’s free!
