Hispanic Heritage Month

Every year from September 15 to October 15, we recognize and celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America as part of Hispanic Heritage and Latino Heritage Month.

This is a time to honor the many Hispanic and Latino Americans who have been integral to the prosperity of the U.S. Their contributions are immeasurable and they have left an indelible mark on the U.S. culture and economy. Learn more about the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month.
