Take Care Utah is organizing its 2nd annual Hispanic Heritage Parade to be held Saturday, September 23rd at The Gateway in Salt Lake City from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Last year the event drew over 2,500 people and that number is expected to grow this year. Sponsors include Telemundo Utah, Yelp, and the Downtown Alliance.

In addition to a fun and festive parade through the heart of the Gateway mall, the event will feature local artisans, dance performances, live music, a car show, and other family friendly entertainment. Participants will enjoy fresh-made food from multiple Hispanic countries including Peru, Cuba, El Salvador, as well as a beer garden featuring Mexican lagers and micheladas (a beer with tabasco, chili powder, clamato, and salt).

Take Care Utah’s team of enrollment assisters will be there to offer FREE help applying for health insurance and raising awareness about Utah being the state with the highest rate of uninsured Hispanic children in the nation.

We recognize that Utah’s Hispanic community is fearful of sharing personal information in order to sign up for health insurance. That’s why Take Care Utah aims to be a trusted community resource and ally of the Hispanic community through organizing this annual event.
