Americas’ Day has been a holiday of the Organisation of American States (OAS) since 1931. The OAS has a long history going back to its founding in 1890. The proclamation of the Monroe Doctrine by US President James Monroe in the early 1800’s also contributed to the background that led to Americas’ Day being celebrated in Honduras and in other American countries.

Every 14 April, in Honduras, there are official ceremonies commemorating Americas’ Day and all it stands for, along with displays of the flags of all members of the Pan-American Union atop office buildings and elsewhere. Schools and colleges hold major events, including parades, musical performances, plays, and more. You’ll also see special exhibitions put on by travel companies with historical memorabilia to do with the founding of the OAS.
