Welcome to Puerto Rico, 2017!
Plan ahead for our big events:
January 19-22, 2017 San Sebastian Street Fair
Old San Juan
Puerto Rico's biggest street party. The entire old city becomes a festival for the three days. Music, dancing, food, art, exhibits. This festival draws hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of visitors, and goes on all day and night.
June 4, 2017 San Juan Gay Pride
One of two gay pride parades in Puerto Rico. Parade starts at Parque de Indio (near the corner of De Diego and Ashford in Condado) at noon and ends at Escabron Beach.
June 9-11, 2017 Boqueron Gay Pride
The Grandaddy of all pride festivals, this is THE event of the gay pride calendar. Hundreds of thousands of GLBT celebrants descend upon a small fishing village and camp out for three days. No other pride festival can compare. We know how to party in Puerto Rico!
June 23-24, 2017 Noche de San Juan
The biggest party in Puerto Rico! At midnight, celebrants dash into the ocean and fall backwards seven times to make seven wishes which will occur in the upcoming year. Best gay party is at the corner of Vendig Street in Condado.
