Spokane Celebrates Hispanic Heritage with Fiesta Spokane

Join us this September as The City of Spokane observes Hispanic Heritage Month, which celebrates the contributions, history, culture, and experiences of Hispanic and Latino-Americans in the United States. The month-long celebration also commemorates a multiplicity of independence holidays across Latin America.

Official City events will kick off with a reception in Chase Gallery (City Hall, lower level) on Sept. 2 and continue throughout the month in a variety of fun, educational events and festivities. These include a black-tie Gala fundraiser for scholarships, a community Festival in Riverfront Park, and a film series highlighting a variety of themes and topics germane to the Hispano-Latino experience in America.
