Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated to honor Hispanic contributions to American heritage and culture. The observance was born in 1968 when Congress authorized the president to issue an annual proclamation designating National Hispanic Heritage Week. Two decades later, this became a month-long celebration, stretching from September 15 to October 15 in celebration of the anniversary of independence of the following Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Chile.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the City of Edinburg will host Nuestra Herencia, a series of virtual programs that will include dance and music presentations, cultural segments, and beat poetry. Nuestra Herencia will be broadcasted every Friday starting September 25th until October 16th at 7:00 p.m. and will be live on the Edinburg Cultural Arts Facebook page and Youtube channel.

Nuestra Herencia’s virtual presentations will be a cultural enrichment for all. The dance and music concerts will feature Folkloric Dance Groups and Mariachi Groups including Studio 956, Conceptos Entidad Dancistica, Mariachi Oro, Conjunto Bear, JEHS Folklorico Jaguar, plus some interesting cultural interviews and showcases.

This is another great program brought to the community by the City of Edinburg’s Library Cultural Arts Department. For more information, please call us at 956-383-6246 or visit www.edinburgarts.com for complete dates and schedules.
