Mission Statement

The Parada San Juan Bautista serves to create solidarity and harmony within the entire community. This is experienced at the grassroots level within the religious and educational community, the business and government sector at the city, county and state levels. Its success in bringing together people from different cultures and background has integrated our activities and events into the social fiber of the city and surrounding communities.

Description

In 1957, the first group marched under the leadership of its Founder, Father Leonardo Carrieri. The Parada San Juan Bautista, Inc. is incorporated as a 501©3 tax exempted, non profit charitable corporation. Over the years, the organization has evolved from a single event to a celebration that spans from mid-May to the end of June. The parade is celebrated annually on the last Sunday of June to coincide with the feast of San Juan Bautista, the patron Saint of Puerto Rico .

Through the years the organization has built strong partnerships with respectable organizations such as the Latin American Economic Development Association, Hispanic Family Center of Southern New Jersey, Camden Children's Garden, Atrium Dance Studio and La Nueva Mega - WEMG 1310AM. Since 1982, the Parada San Juan Bautista Scholarship Fund has awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to high school students who are residents of the City of Camden, New Jersey. The Scholarship Fund has assisted students with their college educational expenditures.
