AARP New Jersey will join the state’s Hispanic and South Asian communities in celebrating their heritage this fall with a mix of in- person and virtual events.

National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from Friday, Sept. 15, to Sunday, Oct. 15. The Hindu holiday of Navratri, a festival dedicated to the Hindu deity Durga, begins Oct. 15 and ends nine days later. Diwali, the festival of lights and India’s biggest holiday of the year, is on Sunday, Nov. 12.
