The 2020 Latino Heritage Month Calendar and Cultural Guide published by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, offers numerous events running through November and a plethora of ongoing events with no deadline. The 188-page guide bursts with original artwork created by Latinx artists. The works include poetry, photography and images of mixed media creations. 

The guide shows that despite the pandemic, Latinx celebrations are still being held, albeit virtually. The guide lists a selection of book titles rich with Latinx themes for children of all ages, including I Love Saturdays y Domingos,  Family Pictures / Cuadros de Familia, Esperanza Rising and Bless me Ultima. The Los Angeles Public Library offers bilingual storytime throughout the year; Nov. 13 is virtual bilingual spanish storytime with crafts celebrating thanks and Thanksgiving. For more information, email mrobinson@lapl.org.

LA is also home to several Latinx historical monuments including Andres Pico Adobe, San Gabriel Mission, Avila Adobe, The Bridge to Nowhere, Dominguez Rancho AdobeAdobe De Palomares,Pio Pico State Historic Park, Catalina Verdugo Adobe, and multiple others.

LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes is offering many ongoing events and activities. Including musical performances, by artists such as Nancy Sanchez, on their virtual stage via En Casa con LA Plaza. Visit the website for Zoom registration links, links to all past performances, a calendar of future performances and a link to their Facebook page.

Mundo Maya Foundation hosting El “Hanal” Pixan”, food of the souls,  Dia de Muertos de los Mayas on Oct.25
