The Ecuadorian Parade kicks off at 68th Street and Northern Blvd in Jackson Heights and marches down to 89th Street in Corona. In prior years the parade / celebration was expected to last until about 4 pm.

The 40th Ecuadorian Parade NYC 2023 celebration continues with a Gala Banquet in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Friday, August 5, 2023 at 8pm.

The 9th Festival Artistico Ecuatoriano 2023 featured live Ecuadorian music, dance performances, food, artisanal crafts and more fun for the entire family.

Thousands of spectators lined Northern Boulevard Sunday, Aug. 7, as the 37th Ecuadorian Parade NYC 2023 stepped off at noon at 69th Street in Woodside and made its way east through Jackson Heights to 87th Street.

The flag-bearing crowd showed their pride with many dressed in the national colors of their homeland — yellow, red, and blue — while representing the more than 250,000 Ecuadorian-American that have settled in Queens.

The extravaganza marks Ecuador’s Independence Day celebrated on Aug. 10, on the anniversary of the 1809 rebellion against Spain that began in Quito, which is now the South American nation’s national capital.

The uprising set off a chain of events that led to liberator Simón Bolivar declaring war on the Spanish colonial authorities.

On Oct. 9, 1820, Guayaquil became the first city to gain its independence from Spain. The rest of the country celebrated their independence following their victory at the Battle of Pichincha under the command of Bolívar on May 24, 1822.

The parade along Northern Boulevard was part of a series of events across Queens that began with an Independence Day Celebration at Borough Hall.

Featuring several musical and dancing performances and Ecuadorian food on Aug. 3 and a gala banquet at Flushing Meadows Corona Park two days later, culminating with the 40th Ecuadorian Festival and Parade.
