2017 is going to be a great year for Baton Rouge, marked with a major yearlong celebration!
On behalf of the Baton Rouge Bicentennial Committee, we invite and encourage you to help Louisiana’s capital city recognize and celebrate 200 years as an incorporated city. While the area was founded in 1699, it wasn’t until 1817 that the city of Baton Rouge was incorporated. Now, 200 years later we’re celebrating this milestone – and it includes with you.
Throughout the year, bicentennial themed events, exhibits, products, and more will be branded with the official Baton Rouge 200 logo.
We encourage and welcome you to become a part of this bicentennial celebration throughout 2017 by placing the Baton Rouge 200 logo on your printed materials, billboards, websites, email signatures, ads, and events. Please also consider using this in your event themes. Get creative and help us mark this special celebration with any current events that you have planned or any that you may looking to plan as a way to mark this celebration.
We’ll send out more information on the launch of the Baton Rouge 200 website and social media sites, great resources to learn more about the events taking place during the Bicentennial yearlong celebration.
Don’t forget to keep us in the know on what you’re planning so that we can help promote your events.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
