2020 marks the 200th anniversary of Maine’s statehood. This bicentennial moment provides a unique opportunity for communities all over the state to think about their history, how it has shaped the way we live here now, and how we might collectively envision the future of our state.

Now is the time to develop plans for how your community is going to commemorate this anniversary. We want to help!

The Maine Humanities Council and Maine Historical Society invite you to join other communities throughout Maine to learn:

  • how your community can get started;
  • what resources are available to support your efforts; and
  • how to connect with statewide bicentennial initiatives.

We will also provide a forum for you to share YOUR plans and hear what other communities have in the works. 

Register for free below and view a draft of the day’s schedule. Mileage reimbursement and lunch are included.
