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.

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

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 coming from California for the event. Don't miss this vibrant celebration of culture and creativity!

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.
