National Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month is a period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States during which time we honor the contributions and influence of Latinx/Hispanic Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage. The commemoration begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period.
Join in on the celebration! From parades to concerts, food fairs, or art exhibits, there are endless ways to learn more about Latinx/Hispanic Americans’ history, culture, and achievements.
