Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in Miramar with Exciting Events

MIRAMAR  – According the latest census, Hispanics make up over 37% of the Miramar population and a third of the City of Miramar’s Hispanic residents are native born.

The Hispanic culture and music is alive and on display and the City of Miramar is proud to share the many activities and events planned for Hispanic Heritage month to celebrate with all residents September 15th through October 15th.

There is something for the entire family: a student art contest, a free outdoor concert event at the sprawling Amphitheater at Miramar Regional Park as well as indoor festivities to be held in our beautiful Miramar Cultural Center.

“Diversity is certainly one of our greatest strengths here in Miramar and Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the role that Hispanic Americans have played in our country’s history and vibrant culture as a whole,” said Commissioner Yvette Colbourne.

Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis added, “We are excited to offer an array of free and paid events that our residents can enjoy as we celebrate together during this exciting time. We are also getting our youth involved this year by inviting them to showcase their talent, while honoring Hispanic Heritage, in our student art contest.”
