The Connecticut Institute for Community Development (CICD) Puerto Rican Parade, Inc. Hartford Chapter is proud to announce the 2022 Annual Greater Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade and Festival del Coquí will be Sunday, August 21, 2022. The parade will follow a route via Hartford’s main streets that will culminate at Bushnell Park where the festival del Coqui will take place.

The parade and the festival are the perfect opportunity for your business, company or organization to continue demonstrating support for the Latino community and a remarkable way to promote your brand/service to this rapidly growing demographic. Sponsors like you ensure both of these events are a success and now is the perfect time to get involved.

With an average of 5,000 to 10,000 people attending each year, the investment opportunities include:

• an intimate connection with the region’s Puerto Rican and Latino community
• prominent recognition at the event
• an assigned number of VIP tickets to several events leading to and including the parade and festival
• extensive media coverage that will provide trade advertising on printed and digital promotional materials

Your partnership is invaluable to our success as a fully volunteer-run, nonprofit organization. With your contribution, we will be able to continue enriching our community by exposing our youth to the beautiful Puerto Rican culture, and hosting our many long standing cultural events such as the Miss Puerto Rico of Greater Hartford Culture Pageant and the Maria C. Sanchez Awards Banquet.

We are excited for you to join us! For your convenience, we have attached information on how to become a sponsor. The deadline for sponsorship is June 25, 2022.  For more information, please contact CICD President, Sammy Vega, at (860) 904-7860 or via email at CICDPRParade@gmail.com.
