The City of Evansville is celebrating its Bicentennial! Join in the Celebration!
March 27, 2012, marks the 200th Anniversary of founder Hugh McGary’s purchase of the 200 acres of land that would ultimately become the City of Evansville. The City, in coordination with the Evansville Convention & Visitors Bureau (ECVB), is hosting a 200-day Bicentennial Celebration to commemorate this milestone anniversary.
The Bicentennial Celebration commences on December 18, 2011, 100 days prior to March 27, 2012, and extends through the Fourth of July 2012, 100 days beyond the March 27th anniversary.
