2021 Latino Independence events in Bay Area

Join the celebrations as we commemorate history, culture and traditions of 8 Latin American countries.

National Latino Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) is when we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States.

Its roots go back to 1968, beginning on September 15, the anniversary of independence of 8 Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize. Learn more.

The biggest celebration is from Mexico called ‘El Grito’. Learn more.
