Botanic Garden Hosts ¡Celebramos! During Hispanic Heritage Month

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden invites guests to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 during ¡Celebramos!, a series of events in the Garden celebrating Hispanic culture.

“This year ¡Celebramos! offers new additions to the lineup following last year’s successful inaugural series,” said CEO and President Patrick Newman. “Celebrating the rich heritage of one of our many diverse communities is a reinforcement of our commitment to serve and be welcoming to all.”

When entering the Garden during Hispanic Heritage Month, guests will be greeted by a colorful art display, turning the Leonard Courtyard into the Garden’s own version of Frida Kahlo’s La Casa Azul in Mexico City. The final ¡Celebramos! event will be an evening for adults. “An Evening at Casa Azul” will feature food, drinks and music.
