Puerto Rican & Cuban Festival | Festival Puertorriqueño y Cubano 2013

The Annual Puerto Rican & Cuban Festival (PRC Fest) launches Carnaval Américas!


This is our 7th PRC Festival! Our mission is to disseminate the Puerto Rican & Cuban Cultures within the City of Houston and it’s surrounding communities. We want to enlighten and educate the audience through dance, art, music and food. Our event supports and promotes other ethnic organizations and their mission, by providing a venue for unification for our Spanish Caribbean citizens and the general market. Most importantly, the PRC Festival empowers our youth to become accomplished, self-directed, and collaborative citizen who boldly contribute to an increasingly complex and evolving world by engaging in leadership roles, relevant experiences and building positive relationships while embracing the uniqueness of each individual.

Our event is done annually to support the continuous efforts to disseminate the Puerto Rican and Cuban cultures within the city of Houston. We also want to teach our children about our roots, assisting them with their self-esteem, identity and letting them know that they have a strong support group. Additionally, we are educating the citizens of the City of Houston about who we are and asking them to embrace our cultures in a friendly and festive environment.

We receive strong support from many businesses and cultural organizations within the city of Houston, Puerto Rico and across the United States for which we are very grateful!
