Cultural Observances and Awareness Events: National Hispanic Heritage Month 2023

Special Observances 2023: Home

Theme: Todos Somos, Somos Uno: We Are All, We Are One

National Hispanic Heritage Month pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America, and who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. The observation was established by Title 36, U.S. Code, Section 126 and Public Law 100-402.  It was enacted into public law on August 17, 1988, under President Ronald Reagan. Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from 15 September - 15 October of each year. The observance is celebrated during this time frame due to many significant events for various Hispanic communities which fall within the observance period. 

The theme this year is Todos Somos, Somos Uno: We are All, We are One.
