Family Event: Latinx Heritage Month

September 16, 2023, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Included in general admission

In 1968, Hispanic Heritage Week was first observed under the directive of President Lyndon Johnson. Twenty years later, in 1988 under President Ronald Reagan, the week was expanded to a full month of honoring the cultures, contributions, and collective actions of people of Latinx descent. Celebrated from September 15 to October 15, the first day of this heritage month honors the independence of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua from Spanish colonial rule on September 15, 1821.

As a third of our city’s population, Latino/a/x Chicagoans have long played a vital role in our community. Join us as we celebrate Chicago’s Latinx communities with a day of learning, interactive activities, and community connections.

Free with general admission; RSVP not needed.
