National Hispanic Heritage Month Celebración! 

September 18, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT

National Hispanic Heritage Month Celebración! 

Can’t make the celebration in person?
Join us virtually with Erika Cosme, content and interpretation developer.

Ven a celebrar con nosotros! Join The Mariners’ Museum and Park in recognizing the substantial contributions, rich traditions, and lush histories of the American Latino community that encompasses Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Come learn why National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15, and the importance of September 15 as a key date in the history of several Latin American countries.

When thinking of Latin America and the Caribbean, one may envision beautiful scenery and exotic locales. But more impressive is the heritage and culture of the peoples who make up these communities. As we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month throughout September and October, venture with us for a closer look into the history and geography of Latin America and Caribbean.
