National Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15th, marking the anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico’s Independence Day follows closely on September 16th, and Chile’s on September 18th. This month serves as a reminder of the enduring impact and influence of Hispanic and Latinx cultures on American society.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is also an excellent time to support local Hispanic-owned businesses in Chelan County. Whether it’s enjoying authentic Latin cuisine at a local restaurant or shopping at Hispanic-owned stores, your support can make a meaningful impact on the local economy.
