The 2018 theme: “Común-Unidad (Common Unity = Community)” to celebrate the multicultural and multi-ethnic diversity of our neighborhoods. “Común Unidad” ties in directly with the festival’s core value of celebrating community, culture and commitment in the South Bronx throughout the years, as well as promoting civic engagement.
