Portland’s annual El Grito festival commemorates Mexican independence with a full day of festivities ranging from mariachi by local high school groups to an Aztec dance.

Starting mid-September and running into October, Hispanic Heritage Month or Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana, honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic (pertaining to people who hail from or have ancestry in Spanish speaking countries) and Latinx (people of Latin American descent) Americans to the United States. If you’re looking to take part in this occasion—and you should!—we’ve rounded up a handful of events in and around Portland for you to celebrate and broaden your cultural understanding. For more ideas, see our full guide to the best things to do and places to eat in Portland. 

Celebrating Hispanic Roots
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Oregon-based Hispanic winemakers and winery owners will tell their stories, proudly display the diversity of Hispanic cultures (which span most of Latin America and Spain), and give back to Oregon’s Spanish-speaking community. Participating wineries Alumbra Cellars, Atticus Wine, Beacon Hill Winery & Vineyard, Cramoisi Vineyard, Parra Wine Co, and Valcan Cellars will offer special wine selections and donate ten percent of ticket and bottle sales to Adelante Mujeres Empresas, a development program that provides instruction for small business owners and supports individuals in pursuit of their dreams.
Beacon Hill Winery, Gaston (Sat Oct 3)
