Hispanic Heritage Month date slider
In 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson created Hispanic Heritage Week to celebrate Hispanic culture. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan expanded the week to a full month, creating what is now known as Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15.

Due to trade and travel along the Santa Fe Trail, the City of Olathe began a deep connection with Hispanic culture throughout its history—a connection that continues today. Join the City during the month as Olathe honors Hispanic heritage with a number of special events.
