In 2019, Alabama will
commemorate its 200th birthday.

ALABAMA 200 is an unprecedented opportunity to experience and explore the state of Alabama. It is a chance to celebrate our place in each of the 67 counties that stretch from the Shoals to the shores. Between 2017 and 2019, ALABAMA 200 will engage residents and visitors in educational programs, community activities, and statewide initiatives that teach, inspire, and entertain.

On May 5th, the city of Mobile hosted a formal ceremony launching the three-year birthday celebration. Watch the Livestream
