Plan to go to fest and enjoy with family and friends but i do think this date changes are making the gente doubt about attendin,and i agree that the prices are getting crazy high just sayin you know…. Maybe just maybe pries will drop since date chnged to Nov 19 :)

July 24, 2011 at 6:58 pm
(15) Shashanna says:

I do agree with all the mix up the prices should flex a little. not to mention I took two days (aug 7 & Aug 14) off of work UNPAID and now my shifts are gone. :( but just the thought of good music people and food …. I WILL still be there come NOV. 19th. See you all there.

(18) Amir says:

when is the actual date 4 the puertorican festival? the date keeps changing

July 28, 2011 at 9:25 pm
(19) golosangeles says:

If you read the post you can clearly see that the new date is November 19, 2011. They don’t always let me know when they change things, so if you have any doubt, click through to the event website or Facebook page. Whatever date is there, is the most current date.

(20) Highly Pissed Off says:

I am beyond livid at this point. I flew my entire family from Nevada to Long Beach because when I first found out about event it was set for August 7th. Come to find out today it was changed to August 14 and now its in November!!! How unorganized and unprofessional is this. I had about 20 friends and family that were all coming from around California we had this date set on our calendars for months!!!! I will NOT be coming back in November and spreading the word to everyone about the waste of money and the way things were handled!!!

Who’s performing?

(22) Gloria says:

I want to participate in the 2011 Boricuafest. Who do I contact? Please Advise.

August 12, 2011 at 5:21 pm
(23) Christina says:

I am with you on being livid. We had 3 families ready to go on Sunday and just found out it’s moved to November? why all the changes?

August 12, 2011 at 6:30 pm
(24) Mina Rodriguez says:

Im a little disappointed that know one sent out a memo stating that the event was moved. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of people showing up for the event this Sudnay.
Why so expensive to get in?
This event is way too over priced, it takes the fun out of going to this event.

(25) ponce says:

i bought tickets on line… can i get a refund since the date changed or are my tickets good for the new date?

August 15, 2011 at 3:33 am
(26) golosangeles says:

Ponce, you’ll have to contact the event organizers through the link in the article. I have nothing to do with the event.

November 2, 2011 at 4:58 pm
(27) Icela says:

Is this a set date now.. August 5,2012 instead of November 18th, 2011??

November 2, 2011 at 6:34 pm
(28) golosangeles says:

Given the number of times the event has been rescheduled, I wouldn’t make any definitive plans until much closer to the date. I try to keep track of the updates on the event’s website, but they don’t let me know when they make changes, so always click the event website, not my blog post for the most up to date information.

(37) Lizet Torres says:

I just came back from my PR Vacation.. and ready to go back.
This Long Beach festival is the worst. More than half of the crowd
isn’t even Rican and the food sucks. The people selling the food
should be ashamed to represent the culture. I don’t see it ever
getting to an enjoyable level. I wish it could, but just don’t see it
happening — ever. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong this year!
