200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

Beginning this spring, the Local Activities Committee of the Alabama Bicentennial Commission will partner with communities and friends across the state to host one-day regional workshops to offer information on bicentennial projects, resources, funding, and more!

Combining local expertise with the experience of our partner agencies and committee members, we aim to convene hundreds of community leaders from all 67 counties by the end of the year.

Each workshop will be tailored to the region and will include tourism professionals, representatives from area history/heritage and arts organizations, local bicentennial committee members, chamber and county representatives, and others.

Information will include:

  • Information about ALABAMA 200 projects and initiatives available to communities
  • Information about funding opportunities and how to apply
  • Resources for building local programming
  • Marketing and branding materials
  • Networking and idea sharing across community and county borders
