2017 - 2018 - 2019



On March 3, at 10 AM, Governor Robert Bentley and Senator Arthur Orr, chair of the bicentennial commission, will officially announce Alabama’s bicentennial commemoration.

On May 5th, the City of Mobile will host a formal ceremony launching the three-year birthday celebration.

The March press conference will lay out the plans and initiatives that will keep Alabama busy until Alabama Day—December 14—2019. Then, on May 5th, the state’s oldest city, Mobile, will see that the commemoration begins with appropriate ceremony—and fun!

Both events are free and open to the public. Stay tuned for more information or call the office of the Alabama Bicentennial Commission at 334-242-4537.

In 2019, Alabama will commemorate its bicentennial.

Two hundred years is a big birthday, and a big birthday calls for a big celebration!

For three years, from March 3, 2017, to December 14, 2019, ALABAMA 200 will celebrate the people, places, and stories that make the state unique.
