Join the City of Holyoke in Celebrating 150 Years!
Holyoke has a rich history and we invite you all to celebrate and follow a long for a year of events to commemorate 150 years!
Come join us for a celebration of rich Puerto Rican heritage, history and culture at our first JIBARO FESTIVAL!
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.
Come out and support Nuestras Raíces at our urban farm La Finca for an afternoon of family fun and cultural re-engagement!
Nuestras Raíces is a grassroots urban agriculture organization based in Holyoke, MA. Our mission is to create healthy environments, celebrate “agri-culture,” harness our collective energy, and to advance our vision of a just and sustainable future.
