Berisso was founded by Italian immigrants, and settled by Italians and other European immigrants. Most Berissenses (name referring to the people of Berisso) are of Italian, Ukrainian, or Polish descent, but include those of Spanish, German, Portuguese, Arab, Bulgarian, Croatian, Armenian, Slovak, Irish, Lithuanian, Jewish and Greek descent.
Because it is home to many ethnicities, Berisso is known as the "The Provincial Capital of the Immigrant." Berisso's diversity is celebrated on September with their own "Immigrant's Festival."
