About Durham 150
To celebrate Durham, NC’s 150th anniversary is to rightfully honor the changemakers who shaped Durham’s unique sense of place. It’s to rightfully tout Durham’s position for the future. It is a chance to rally proud Durhamites, mobilize partners, and invite the world to experience all that we know the Bull City offers.
Durham’s sesquicentennial, a yearlong celebration of the City of Durham’s 150th anniversary of incorporation in 2019, encourages Durhamites and visitors to explore themes of history and education, innovation and entrepreneurship, social equity and robust democracy, and arts and leisure.
