Hispanic Heritage Month At Home Resources
National Hispanic Heritage month, a time for celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of people with Hispanic and Latino heritage, runs from September 15 to October 15 each year. These dates are significant. September 15th is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, followed by the anniversary of Mexican independence on the 16th and Chilean independence on the 18th. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan expanded official recognition of Hispanic Heritage from a week-long event started in 1968 to the current 30-day period.
