Chicago Latina Expo is a favorite for generations of people who identify as Latinas or Latinx


National Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 has come to an end. But the celebration of celebrating Hispanic Culture is not over, not even close! We have much to celebrate, yet advocate our Culture progressions, success stories, and testimonials and introduce many talents from different lifepaths, careers, and industries. The world needs to know it's our turn!


Our Latinx Magazine editorial team kicked off National Hispanic Heritage Month and celebrated and also introduced our digital magazine during Chicago Latina Expo 2022.


Chicago Latina Expo kicks off its 2023 tour in Chicago this year. The lifestyle expo is the largest in the Midwest. It is co-produced by Dia De La Mujer Latina, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to and focused on promoting healthy behaviors within the Latino community.


With the Mission to address the structural barriers to upward social and economic mobility for Latinas.


This was Chicago Latina Expo 5th year, and the theme was "IT'S OUR TURN." The two-day viral affair took place October 1st and 2nd at Macy's State Street in Chicago, Illinois. With the Mission to address the structural barriers to upward social and economic mobility for Latinas.


Specifically focused on health, wealth, business, systemic racism, equality, and the future of Latinas in the boardroom. Latinos are the second-largest ethnic group in the city of Chicago, Illinois. Latinos now make up nearly a third of the city's total population. 1-3 individuals in Chicago are Latinos, with a buying power of $38 billion.


Chicago Latina Expo 2022 presented by BMO Harris Bank and Pfizer featured The Latinx Awards and World Fashion Festival. Featuring a Bodega Market Place, a Career Expo, and the I Am Enough Latina Expo launch and breakfast. The World Fashion Festival presented designers from Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Argentina, and Puerto Rico.


Our editorial team had a great time meeting the Mujer Latina from Chicago! And we look forward to participating next year. Chicago Latina Expo has grown into a movement and favorite for generations of people who identify as Latina or Latinx.
