Upcoming Events

Welcome to the Official Illinois Bicentennial Event Calendar. Here, you will be able to view and plan for events throughout the state during the entire Bicentennial celebration.

​Illinois will celebrate its 200th year from December 3, 2017 to our official birthday on December 3, 2018. Look for special events on December 3, 2017, August 26, 2018, and December 3, 2018.

In addition to signature events and projects being led by the Commission, we invite all statewide partners and event and project managers planning activities between December 3, 2017 and December 3, 2018 to apply for endorsement to become an official part of Illinois Bicentennial.
