Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 - October 15, 2021
The beginning of the celebration was chosen as it is the Independence Day for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile, celebrate their independence just days later, Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
Originally started as a heritage celebration week in 1968, the observation was expanded to a full month in 1988.
