America250 is a multiyear effort to commemorate the semiquincentennial, or 250th anniversary, of the United States.
The purpose of the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission, created by Congress, and the corresponding America250 Foundation is to catalyze a more perfect union by
designing and leading the most comprehensive and inclusive celebration in our country’s history.
America250 represents a coalition of public and private partners all working to create initiatives and programs that honor our first 250 years and inspire Americans to imagine our next 250. The commemoration period began in 2020, culminates on July 4, 2026, and officially concludes in 2027.
