Hispanic Heritage Month

Every year from September 15 to October 15, we honor Hispanic Heritage Month. On September 15, several Latin American countries – Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua – celebrate their independence. In addition, Mexico celebrates independence on September 16 and Chile’s independence day is September 18.

This past weekend, customers enjoyed a kickoff celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month at Langston Hughes Library. Activities included crafts, cooking, and a flamenco demonstration. 

More events are coming up as the month continues through October 15! We have several concerts for you to enjoy.

This weekend, join us for the all-children’s mariachi band on Saturday, September 28 at 4pm at Langston Hughes. Enjoy the freewheeling style of Los Cumpleaños on Saturday, October 5 at 2:30pm at East Elmhurst. Revel in guitar tango on Saturday, October 5 at 2:30pm at Woodhaven. Join us for a concert with Mariachi Loco of NY on Tuesday, October 8 at 6pm at Central. On Saturday, October 12, celebrate with Edwin Vazquez’s heartfelt Gypsy Latin soul at 12pm at McGoldrick
