Hispanic Heritage Month
About Hispanic Heritage Month
Over 17% of our county’s population has roots in El Salvador, Mexico, Spain, Chile, Guatemala, or one of the many other nations in the Spanish-speaking world. As Prince George’s County grows and changes, we want to celebrate the amazing diversity of art and culture that people of Hispanic or Latin descent have added to the rich tapestry of our neighborhoods.
Each year, from September 15 to October 15, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with music, dance, and art exhibitions throughout the County. Enjoy an evening of art, live music, delicious cuisine and fun activities suitable for all ages at our annual Opening Reception on hosted by the Prince George's Publick Playhouse!
