Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated to honor Hispanic contributions to American heritage and culture. The observance was born in 1968 when Congress authorized the president to issue an annual proclamation designating National Hispanic Heritage Week. Two decades later, This became a month-long celebration, stretching from September 15 to October 15 in celebration of the anniversary of independence of the following Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, Mexico and Chile.

To celebrate this month, the City of Edinburg will host a series of virtual programs that will include dance and music presentations, cultural segments, and beat poetry. The presentations will be live on the Edinburg Cultural Arts Facebook and Youtube Channel. Nuestra Herencia is a virtual presentation that will be broadcasted every Friday on Hispanic Heritage Month starting September 25th until October 16th at 7:00 PM.

Nuestra Herencia’s presentation will be a cultural enrichment for all, the Dance and Music Concerts will feature Folkloric Dance Groups and Mariachi Groups including Studio 956, Conceptos Entidad Dancistica, Mariachi Oro, Conjunto Bear, JEHS Folklorico Jaguar, plus some interesting cultural interviews and showcases.
