National Pan American Day - April 14NATIONAL PAN AMERICAN DAY

National Pan American Day is observed annually in the United States on April 14.   This day is recognized by Presidential proclamation and is part of Pan American Week.

National Pan American Day commemorates the First International Conference of American States which concluded on April 14, 1890.

Inspired by the idea of a Panamerica, United Sates Secretary of State James G. Blane first developed the concept of an International Conference for the Western Hemisphere. It took a nearly a decade, but in October of 1889, the conference began. Held in Washington, D.C., the conference covered a large variety of subjects from currency and banking to military and trade.

The International Conference also created the International Union of American Republics, the forerunner of the Organization of American States (OAS).
