About Special Events
For almost four decades, Taller Puertorriqueño (Taller) has served as the regional leader in Latino arts and cultural expression. Taller’s special events serve to expose Philadelphia’s vibrant Latino community to histories and contributions that directly influence modern realities. We also help to enrich the fabric of the Greater Philadelphia region through programming that perpetuates multicultural inclusion and tolerance while creating a space for honest dialogue about the parallels between diverse Latino cultures and the cultures of the world. In doing so, we bring Philadelphians together to experience the magic and transformational power of the arts.
Taller is a truly multidisciplinary cultural center providing an array of services and programming and developing exciting partnerships with national and local organizations. Collaborations with a wide range of organizations help us produce more complex events like the now three decades-strong Annual Feria del Barrio street festival, which brings thousands of participants from the region to our community, supporting local businesses and a diversity of artists and vendors.
Taller is a hub for the community, a crossroads where people come together.
