HUNTS POINT FISH PARADE

Saturday, June 17th from 11:00am to 6:00pm

Location: 940 Garrison Ave, Bronx, NY

The Fish Parade & Arts Festival is an annual procession through Hunts Point connecting the community to the Bronx River. Like shoaling fish, the community marches together in a family-friendly, vibrant celebration. The parade’s vibe combines activism, joy, and community building. Participants often use banners, costumes, and puppets representing marine life. The parade culminates in an arts festival featuring live music, dancing, and art-making. The event is also a platform for Bronx residents and organizations to raise awareness about environmental issues and to advocate for environmental justice.

2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the Fish Parade and Arts Festival. This year’s theme is Rooted Visions. It is an opportunity to honor the achievements and struggles of those who came before us while inspiring us to continue working toward a brighter future.
