From now until October 15, it’s Hispanic Heritage Month!

If you missed the Bolivian Tinkus and Colombian Marimondas of DC’s Parade of Nations this week, don’t fret–greater DC boasts enough Hispanidad to keep us celebrating Hispanic history and culture year-round.

Get into the spirit with us:

  • Give into your cravings for arroz con gandules at Los Hermanos. Stop by on October 8th and 15th, to support a local, Hispanic-owned business and help CentroNía provide critical early childhood education and family support services at the same time! What better way to embody this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month theme of esperanza? ¡Buen Provecho!
  • Drop in on a virtual workshop or exhibit at the Smithsonian. From September 15 through October 15, they’ll be offering a range of events focusing on prominent Hispanic figures such as Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor and sculptor Marisol Escobar and covering themes such as environmental justice in South America. Most events are family-friendly or geared toward younger participants, so you can let the little ones into the action.
  • Catch a show at the Gala Hispanic Theater, a national center for Latino performing arts. Like CentroNía, they’ve been a member of DC’s vibrant Columbia Heights community for over three decades. The stage is currently graced by Doña Rosita la soltera (Doña Rosita the Spinster), a theatrical adaptation by Nando López of the period play by Federico García Lorca. As with most Gala Hispanic shows, this one is in Spanish with English subtitles. The show will run through October 3, 2021, with special discounts available on certain dates in honor of Hispanic Heritage month!

Keep an eye on CentroNía’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to see all the great celebrations we have planned!
