Communities are the Heart of Maine200

The Bicentennial is a great occasion to create an event in your area that marks an important date in local history or celebrates a key element in the area’s success—economic or cultural.

Submit an Event

Submissions must be open and accessible to the public, relevant to the bicentennial commemoration, and include a title, brief description, and image. Events listed on this calendar are not necessarily endorsed by the Maine Bicentennial Commission. Get more information on becoming an endorsed event.
