Each fall, residents of the United States observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. It’s a celebration of the histories, cultures and contributions of citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. At the College of Charleston, it’s an opportunity for students to explore and learn the rich traditions of the Hispanic culture.
This year, the Department of Hispanic Studies, in partnership with the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program, the Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services and the Cougar Activities Board, will present Hispanic Heritage Celebration Day on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019, at 3 p.m. in the Stern Center Gardens.
The event will feature salsa dancing, food trucks, exhibitions and music by DJ Luigi. It is free and open to the public. For additional information, visit the Department of Hispanic Studies department website.
