The beauty of living in a diverse community such as DeSoto is that we welcome all voices and celebrate all heritages– this festival serves as a platform to do just that! We hope that everyone in the community will come together to celebrate and experience the nuance and diversity of the Latino culture,” said Mayor Curtistene McCowan.

About National Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

A love of music is first and foremost, and the second is the ear required to blend, mix and preserve continuity. The third and most important is the ability to read a crowd. DJs set the tone of a party. This opportunity will now allow me to help indie artists touch places they may not have had the currency or resources to touch. I have supported the music I love with radio and deejaying, now I can help with distribution and help them fulfill their desire to put a physical product in their fans hands!” –Frances Jaye
