Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2020
Here's how you can celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in Denver safely this year.
Making up 34 percent of Denver, the Hispanic population is a major cultural and economic force - one that is growing. In the next five years, experts at the Colorado State Demography office expect Denver’s Hispanic population will grow by nearly 10 percent. In honor of #HispanicHeritageMonth, we look to shine the spotlight on this prominent feature of our collective identity.
Denver is a Hispanic cultural hot spot, and you should certainly take advantage of that fact. There are plentiful ways to discover and celebrate the culture. Santa Fe’s art district is a perfect place to start! Galleries, murals, restaurants, food trucks, a Latino theater and a Latino museum are all to be found in this neighborhood.
But with social distancing still in effect, it's important to find safe ways to celebrate. Please refer to the list below from Denver.org to find out what Denver has to offer this year amid these unique circumstances:
