200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

The three-year bicentennial celebration is a great time to start a new event to commemorate the bicentennial. However, if a festival, fair, play, or other event is already a tradition in your community, perhaps it can take on a bicentennial focus for a year or two.

If you are interested in planning an event or incorporating a bicentennial focus, the first place to start is one of our Alabama 200 planning workshops. Participants will include anyone interested in knowing more about the bicentennial or participating, including representatives of local history/heritage and arts groups; public libraries; schools; civic, social, and service organizations; city and county governments; media (newspaper, radio, TV, digital); and businesses.
