Join the city of Aurora for a unique celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, at Aurora Central Library, 14949 E. Alameda Parkway.

Community members are invited to be part of this vibrant celebration of culture and creativity that will include an opening reception of three amazing collaborations:

  • "Yo Soy Arte: Calacas y Catrinas" with Denver Botanic Gardens

  • "Positively Aurora" with Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art

  • "Hispanidad" with Tonos Latinos

Attendees will enjoy live music, performances and food from different Latin American countries. The opening reception includes a unique opportunity to meet Hispanic artists of different disciplines, including the creator of the larger-than-life paper maché Catrinas (traditional Day of the Dead skeleton figure), Ricardo Soltero, coming from California for the event.

This event is free, and no registration is required. Learn more at

“We are extremely proud to celebrate the contributions of the Hispanic and Latino community, a vital part of our city’s history, economy and culture,” said Midori Clark, director of Library and Cultural Services. “This unique celebration is a recognition of our city’s diversity and a particular tribute to the Hispanic community through art, food, music and traditions.”

From Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, the histories, cultures and contributions of those from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America are celebrated. Nearly 30% of Aurora's population is of Hispanic or Latino origin. The people from this community who call Aurora home come from all walks of life and have their own individual stories of immigration or a long family history that predates Colorado statehood.

This event is hosted by Aurora Public Library, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Office of International and Immigrant Affairs, in partnership with Denver Botanic Gardens, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and Tonos Latinos; sponsored by Donor Alliance and Fitzsimons Credit Union.
