maine's bicentennial commemoration is on!

The Maine Bicentennial Commission is glad to announce that we will now be commemorating Maine’s 200th birthday in 2021, as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis. Please visit our Signature Events page and calendar to see all of the bicentennial events that are planned for this summer and fall.

While you're on our website, we encourage you to also explore the resources we offer to reflect on all that makes Maine what it is today—our land and waters, history, people and institutions, challenges and successes.
