From the Fiesta Boricuas to the Three Kings Day parade, Haunted Paseo Boricua and the Puerto Rican Festival, the Paseo Boricua is home to some of the most entertaining, family-friendly celebrations anywhere in Chicago.
It is not unusual for families to plan entire annual family reunions around the dates of the Puerto Rican Festival, gathering on Division for the parade and the convening for day-long picnics in nearby Humboldt Park, complete with bands, drums and dancing.
The following are seasonal events that take place throughout the year:
Three Kings Day Parade
La Casita de Don Pedro Artisan’s Market Every Saturday
May – September
Puerto Rican People's Parade
Puerto Rican Film Series Every Other Saturday
July / August
September – Sunday Before Labor Day
Haunted Paseo Boricua Halloween
With lots of foot traffic, parking, and a high profile for entertainment and service, we urge you to consider the Paseo as your business location.
We are near enough to downtown, but not too near. We offer the advantages of a less congested area, with none of the down side.
The Division Street Business Development Association can help you locate your new business on the Paseo.
We know which buildings have available space. We know the owners and the neighbors, and are here to advise and assist as you seek the prime location for your service or retail location.
Please feel free to contact DSBDA for a consultation about the possibilities of the Paseo as your new location!
