Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month Year-Round


Celebrating and honoring the heritage of Hispanic and Latinx communities.

Hispanic Heritage Month (also referred to as Latinx Heritage Month) spans from September 15th to October 15th. Established in 1968, first as a week-long observance, coinciding with the independence days of Central and Southern American countries including; Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile. In 1988, the week-long observance was expanded by President Ronald Reagan.

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestry is tied to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The blanket term “Hispanic Heritage Month” was assigned in 1968, but does not accurately represent all of the unique cultural identities of those celebrated and acknowledged during this period, leading many to refer to the celebration as Latine or Latinx Heritage Month.
