Somos Colorado

Latino History & Heritage

A rich tapestry of in-person and online experiences across the state—from informative discussions to festive celebrations, along with a wide variety of exhibits and digital resources—blankets Latino Heritage Month at History Colorado. This commemoration, generally observed September 15–October 15 in communities across Colorado each year, is an exciting time to embrace exploration conducted year-round in collaboration with the individuals and communities that we partner with and serve.
