Looking Back and Moving Forward
Celebrating 200 years of Mississippi history and the state's bright future.
The Bicentennial will be celebrated all year long, from the three marquee Mississippi Bicentennial Celebrations to events large and small in communities all around the state. As Mississippians come together around a shared history, keep up with celebrations from the Gulf Coast to the River, and through the Pines, Delta and Hills regions here.
