National Hispanic Heritage Month

Big picture
National Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15, 2020 to October 15, 2020 in the United States for recognizing the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. The timing is key. Hispanic Heritage Month always starts on September 15, a historically significant day that marks the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. The designated period is also a nod to those from Mexico and Chile, which celebrate their independence on September 16 and September 18, respectively. We appreciate Hispanic Americans' contributions to our culture.
