Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15–October 15

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.

We will be hosting a Chef demonstrating a few flavorful Hispanic dishes. Throughout the celebration month, we will be providing children and adults an opportunity to make authentic Latin American inspired crafts. See details and register now.

Del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre celebramos en los Estados Unidos el Mes de la Herencia Hispana o Mes de la Hispanidad. Es una celebración importante, ya que se evocan los logros, aportes y contribuciones de nuestra presencia en este país.

En 1968, el Congreso autorizó al presidente Lyndon B. Johnson a que proclamara la Semana Nacional de la Herencia Hispana, que incluía el 15 de septiembre –fecha en que se celebran las independencias de Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua– y 16 de septiembre y el 18 de septiembre –fechas en que México y Chile celebran su independencia.

Veinte años más tarde, el 17 de agosto de 1988, el presidente Ronald Reagan aprobó la Ley 100-402 que amplió la celebración por un periodo de 31 días al que se denominó Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana – desde el 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre.

Tendremos a un Chef demostrando algunos sabrosos platos hispanos. A lo largo del mes de celebración, brindaremos a niños y adultos la oportunidad de hacer auténticas artesanías de inspiración latinoamericana. Vea los detalles y regístrese ahora.
