Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Hispanic Heritage Month, which is observed from September 15 to October 15, is an annual tribute to the history, cultural contributions and continuing vibrant presence of Hispanic-Americans, those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.  Formerly known as Hispanic Heritage Week, the celebration was initiated under President Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and expanded to a 30-day event by President Reagan in 1988.
