JIBARO Festival July 9 – Celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage

July 9 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Come join us for a celebration of rich Puerto Rican heritage, history and culture at our first JIBARO FESTIVAL!

FREE ADMISSION

The jíbaro values and way of life are associated with the rich heritage and culture of Puerto Rico, as well as with the authenticity, resourcefulness and craftsmanship of the Puerto Rican people. These values and way of life include a sense of community, family, and hospitality, and are closely tied with the agrarian culture of our beloved Caribbean island.

JIBARO FESTIVAL includes:

  • a traditional PIG ROAST
  • a FARMER’S MARKET featuring fresh local produce from Holyoke-area farmers
  • LIVE PUERTO RICAN FOLK MUSIC (played on the Cuatro) featuring Parrandero de Villalba y Su Fuerza Tipica.
  • Raffle prizes from our sponsors.
  • Activities for the kiddies, games, and much more fun.

Come out and support Nuestras Raíces at our urban farm La Finca for an afternoon of family fun and cultural re-engagement!
