Hispanic Heritage Month Events

Thomas G. Carpenter Library Hispanic Heritage Month Online Book Display


National Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from September 15 – October 15 each year at UNF. The significance of this date range relates to the independence observances of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile and Belize. Hispanic Heritage Month is sometimes referred to as Latinx Heritage month, to be inclusive of all identity groups and the experiences of indigenous and non-Spanish speaking people from Latin American countries. Celebrations hosted during this time focus on sharing the history, cultures and contributions of Hispanic people. 


Past events for Hispanic Heritage Month include Nuestra Noche, Friendly Fútbol, Hispanic Heritage Month Trivia, and more! Check below in September for a full list of our events.
