The family-friendly event includes a kids’ zone complete with art, soccer, basketball, bounce house and other activities.

“PRC Festival is a celebration of our cultures, as well as our assimilation and contributions to the culture of the United States,” said Javier Ferrer, producer and president of PRC Festival.

“Known as the most diverse city in America, Houston and its citizens embrace all cultures. We invite everyone out for a first-hand experience of the sights, sounds and flavors of the Spanish Caribbean islands.”

Vigil for Puerto Rico

By Juan Morales

Vigil for Puerto Rico

Join us this Friday, July 26th, at La Placita, Houston, for our 1st Vigil for Puerto Rico. We will pray for our fellow Puerto Ricans in the island to be given the correct leadership to guide them towards a quick recovery from the political and governmental chaos that they are experiencing. We invite all to pray with us and dance to the rhythms of Bomba & Plena.

Given the situation in P.R., it is becoming abundantly clear that private citizens will need to help rebuild the island. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done. Please support our cause as we help eliminate the blue tarps that still plague our island. You can donate to Texas United for Puerto Rico, as we will continue our mission.

The Festival Puertorriqueño & Cubano | PRC Festival Houston joins hands with La Placita, Houston and Texas United for Puerto Rico in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico.

Join us this Friday and bring everyone! Tag and Share with everyone that you know. Puerto Rico needs us!

Telemundo Thanks

By Juan Gil

Telemundo Thanks

As the PRC Festival keeps getting closer, we would like to make a special edition note to extend our deepest appreciation to one of our biggest sponsors, Telemundo Houston.

We are really excited to have Telemundo among our sponsors in the 11th version of the PRC Festival. Without their partnership, we would not have been able to reach every Houston corner with high-quality content, for the festivals and advocacy groups to help the Hispanic communities throughout Texas.

Telemundo has been there helping us to fulfill the objectives of the Puerto Rican, Cuban and Dominican people, by broadcasting the event and helping us spread the word to the community.

We will keep up on our journey of identity and of understanding through a multicultural exchange. We are together and the Hispanic and Latino community is unstoppable!

From the PRC Festival collaborators and the Hispanic community in Texas to Telemundo: Our Biggest Thanks!
