There are so many things to love about Humboldt Park, from its rich Puerto Rican roots, to its historic namesake park, to the pops of color from the neighborhood’s unique street art.
You’ll know you’re in Humboldt Park when you pass under one of the monumental Puerto Rican flags that serve as gateways into the neighborhood. The metal sculptures are a not-so-subtle hint at the community’s proud heritage, which you can experience at the annual Puerto Rican Parade. The June event draws more than a million people a year, making it one of the highest attended Latino celebrations in the country. Or check out Fiesta Boricua in August, an annual block party that honors the community’s Puerto Rican identity.
