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 applying for a Maine200 endorsement of your event.
