    Get ready, mi gente, because Hispanic Heritage Month is here!


    From September 15 - October 15, the Latinx community gets to share with the rest of the world what we already celebrate every day--our cultura, our sazón-filled food and rhythmic music, our stories demonstrating resilience, fuerza and joy and the incredible diversity that exists amongst us.


    The City of Brotherly Love and the Greater Philadelphia region is home to many different Latinx communities. Whether we’re immigrants who chose Philly as our home, refugees seeking resettlement or American-born Latinx, we are all here, unidos, and excited to bask in the beauty of a month dedicated to us in a city that we love.


    Whether you’re a fellow Latinx looking to explore and engage with your own community or someone interested in celebrating our heritage, below are the top Philly-based events that are showcasing our history and contributions to the world. Are you Latinx? Share with us how you’re celebrating on FacebookInstagram and Twitter @Phillyfunguide!


    XPN Welcomes: Los Lobos


    Since 1974, East L.A.’s Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic and commercial possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll. Check out one of the great bands of Latino Rock on Friday, October 12 at The Colonial Theatre for a night representing America’s cultural melting pot.


    Five Cuban Outsiders


    Five Cuban Outsiders presents five Cuban artists: Carlos Garcia Huergo, Leandro Gomez Quintero, Mario Mesa, Damian Valdes Dilla, and Wayacon (Julian Espinosa Rebollido)--none of whom were formally trained in art. Visit the exhibit for free at the Indigo Arts Gallery until November 24 to learn about their history, art and story.

    Not from here, Not from There/No Soy de Aqui ni de Alla: The Autobiography of Nelson Diaz

Join Diaz at the Free Library on Tuesday, October 9 and December 19 as he discusses his book and path towards the American Dream.
