About National Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from September 15 to October 15. It promotes the history, culture, and achievements of Americans whose ancestry comes from Mexico, Spain, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. This month period covers the anniversary of the independence of Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile. Columbus Day (known in Latin America as Día de la Raza), which is October 12, also falls within these 30 days.
