Haitian Heritage Month

A nationally recognized month celebrating the rich culture, art, foods, and traditions of Haiti and its people. It is celebrated during the month of May as an expansion of Haitian Flag Day on May 18th. In Miami, Little Haiti is the cultural heart of the Haitian diaspora and home to all things Caribbean that can be found in galleries, museums, family-owned restaurants, and bookstores. To our Haitian community, we encourage sharing your heritage experiences in Creole and letting us know how Greater Miami Shines.

Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Another nationally recognized month celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders in the United States. A diverse group whose heritages represent more than 50 ethnic groups and 100 languages, who have made enormous contributions to the civic, cultural, and economic fabric of our nation.  In Miami, the Asian American Advisory Board under the Office of Community Advocacy is charged with making Miami-Dade County a community that embraces our diverse and unique population.

Jewish American Heritage Month

On April 20, 2006, President George W. Bush proclaimed that May would be Jewish American Heritage Month. The announcement was the crowning achievement in an effort by the Jewish Museum of Florida and South Florida Jewish community leaders that resulted in resolutions urging the president to proclaim a month that would recognize the more than 350-year history of Jewish contributions to American culture.
