About National Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the U.S. from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 each year to celebrate Latino culture and the past and present contributions of individuals with Latino heritage. The month-long observance began as Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968 and was expanded to a full 30 days in 1988; the Sept. 15 start date is relevant as the anniversary of the independence of several Latin American countries.
