Ypsilanti’s Bicentennial is coming in 2023! The bicentennial planning committee (Bicentennial City Commission) is hard at work planning a full year of Ypsilantiinspired events and meaningful community gatherings to recognize Ypsilanti’s 200th anniversary, since its incorporation on April 22, 1823. Expect family-fun entertainment, historic-driven happenings, and even a few surprises, including opening the time capsule from the Ypsilanti Sesquicentennial in 1973!
The regular meetings of the City of Ypsilanti Bicentennial Commission for the year of 2022 will be
held on the fourth Thursday of each month unless a holiday falls on that date. For the months of
May and June, meetings will start at 7:00 p.m. at Washtenaw County Office of Community & Economic
Development (OCED), 415 West Michigan Ave, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. July on, the remainder of the
meetings will take place in-person at the Ypsilanti Freighthouse, 100 Market Place, Ypsilanti, MI 48197.
