Philadelphians are making big plans for America's 250th anniversary in 2026, and that work was unanimously endorsed by a resolution passed by Philadelphia City Council in April 2015.
Join USA250 and our Gen250 Committee for a special State of Young Philly lunch briefing. Many of Philly's most prominent institutions, art and public spaces were first introduced at the 1876, 1926, or 1976 celebrations, when millions of American and international guests came to Philadelphia. Learn how a diverse set of regional institutions are launching the planning process and how Young Philadelphians can get involved.
Today's 2nd graders will graduate high school in 2026. We have our work to do in order to ensure that Equality, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are leading values for the next generation.
This event is also part of GlobalPhilly 2015 and will include an overview of international participation in national anniversary events hosted in Philadelphia in 1876, 1926, 1976 and next in 2026.
