Our Annual Fundraising Event: Fiesta del Sol, July 27-30, 2017
In 1972, Fiesta del Sol began as a celebration to commemorate PNCC’s role in securing the city’s commitment to building Benito Juarez Community Academy. Today, Fiesta del Sol continues to reflect PNCC’s desire for social transformation reflected in community organizing. Fiesta del Sol is Pilsen Neighbor Community Council’s Annual Fundraising event! Without this event PNCC would not be able to sustain all its partnerships, leader programs, leader retreats, it has to offer.
Starting off as a block party Fiesta del Sol has evolved into a nationally publicized event with an attendance of over 1.3 million people during the four day event. As the largest Latino festival in the Midwest, Fiesta del Sol brings live entertainment, local art, diverse cuisine, carnival rides and more. We are located in the Pilsen neighborhood, family oriented, and alcohol free. The Fiesta is organized by over 200 community leaders and volunteers.
