Sesquicentennial Celebration

A Message from the Sesquicentennial Committee

For generations, Anderson has been called home. As we approach the 150th anniversary of our city’s founding, we are proud to be recognized for the resilience and growth we have accomplished as a community.

A year-long celebration of our incorporation will take place throughout 2015. Anderson’s Sesquicentennial Celebration will be a world-class event in which residents, businesses and visitors can participate. The cornerstone of the celebration will be 150 hours of celebration during the week of August 22-28, ending with the largest birthday party in Anderson’s history. Numerous events and activities are scheduled to honor the City’s history and culture as well as focus on Anderson’s promising future.

We invite you to become a partner in this historic endeavor. There are a number of sponsorship levels and ways in which your company can assist in making this anniversary celebration a success. This sponsorship package provides numerous branding opportunities that will benefit your company though an association with our city and the celebration events.

There is an amazing spirit that abounds in Anderson. That spirit took root in 1865 and grows stronger each year. We hope that you will become a part of Anderson’s history and join us in celebrating 150 years of success, resilience, culture and history.
