Taller Puertorriqueño’s 2021 Parranda returns to its in-person format on Dec. 3
Taller Puertorriqueño, the noted “cultural heart of Latino Philadelphia,” will bring back its Parranda celebration to its original form in 2021.
Taller Puertorriqueño proudly presents themselves as the “cultural heart of Latino Philadelphia,” “el corazón cultural del barrio.”
Towards the end of each year, Taller Puertorriqueño puts on a Parranda, a traditional Puerto Rican celebration that occurs around Christmas and incorporates the island’s music, food and drinks into the itinerary.
Taller’s Parranda incorporates traditional elements of holiday music, cheer and a general celebration of the season.
This will be the 23rd year Taller Puertorriqueño puts on its Parranda. It will also be the first since announcing new executive director Nasheli Juliana Ortiz González.
Taller’s 2021 Parranda will take place on Friday, Dec. 3 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Masks will be required.
To attend Taller’s Parranda, those interested must make a minimum donation of $50 towards the Taller Puertorriqueño program.
This minimum donation will provide attendees with food and drink. Those who are annual donors of Taller Puertorriqueño — of $250 or more — will not be charged when ordering their ticket.
Those considered community members will only be charged $25 to attend. There is also a $90 option for couples.
This year’s Parranda will also be a return to Taller’s original in-person format after last year’s went virtual for safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, Taller will not forget these safety concerns. While in-person, Taller will practice safety by utilizing its expanded spaces and amenities.
