Oberlin’s Fiesta en la Biblioteca Celebrates
National Hispanic Heritage Month
In observance of National Hispanic Heritage Month (which runs from mid-September through mid-October), the Oberlin Heritage Center and the Lorain Museum of Hispanic and Latino Cultures are hosting a fun-filled afternoon of music, dancing, authentic foods and plenty of fun at the Oberlin Public Library on Saturday, September 23 from 3-5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, with special thanks to The Community Foundation of Lorain County and The Nord Family Foundation for their support.
Combine the Fiesta with a visit to the Oberlin Heritage Center earlier in the day and tour the Museum of Hispanic and Latino Cultures’ guest exhibit featuring art and artifacts from 19 Spanish-speaking countries from around the world. Tours are free this day (regularly $6 for adults) as the Heritage Center takes part in Smithsonian Museum Day, when museums across the nation emulate the free-admission policy of the Smithsonian’s Washington, D.C.-based properties. Tour options include a bilingual (Spanish/English) guided tour offered at 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m., which combines Oberlin history with the guest exhibit, or a self-guided version of the guest exhibit only, which can be viewed at your own pace between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Reservations are recommended for the guided tours; walk-ins are welcome for the self-guided version.)
For more information about the Oberlin Heritage Center visit www.oberlinheritagecenter.org; you may also contact the Center directly at (440) 774-1700 or email@example.com. For more about the Museum of Hispanic and Latino Cultures, contact President and Curator Guillermo Arriaga (firstname.lastname@example.org).
