Be inspired by the rich traditions and vibrant communities of Hispanic Culture
The Arts Council of Fayetteville-Cumberland County is announcing several new initiatives honoring Hispanic Heritage Month. National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15 to honor the many contributions Hispanic Americans have made and continue to make to the United States of America.
Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the Hispanic traditions and social values that contribute to the diversity of our nation and amplifying the incredible array of culture and diverse histories that contribute to the Latino influence in the United States.
