Maine’s Bicentennial was in 2020. Events, because of the pandemic, unfortunately had to be postponed. However, the celebration of Maine’s 200th anniversary will go on, just a year late.

The Maine Bicentennial Commission is scheduling for later this year a “200-Plus-One” campaign. A tentative schedule includes a Maine Statehood Day Ceremony during the summer in Augusta, a parade in Lewiston/Auburn and a “Time Capsule Sneak Peek and Participation Kickoff” some time in the spring.

From The Maine Bicentennial Commission:

Maine’s Bicentennial Commission regrets that most events planned to celebrate Maine’s 200th birthday are on hold because of the COVID-19 crisis. We are working on alternate plans and timetables to give Maine’s 200th anniversary of Statehood the celebration it deserves.
