Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is a month-long celebration that takes place from September 15 - October 15. This month honors and highlights the tremendous contributions and influence of Latinx and Hispanic communities in the United States.

The dates are reflective of the anniversaries and celebrations of the independence of many Latin American countries. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all declared independence in 1821. In addition, Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence days on September 16, September 18, and September 21, respectively.
