Celebrate More - Monroe County's Bicentennial

Happy birthday, Monroe County! Check back on this page for updates on events and other festivities to mark this milestone anniversary for Monroe County. 

Celebrate More is a community-wide celebration of events tied to the Monroe County Bicentennial. Celebrate More will bring people from across the community together in celebration of all that Monroe County has to offer, from historic, cultural, and educational festivals, to family-friendly activities and special events.

The celebration of the Monroe County Bicentennial recognizes the proud history and the promising future of Monroe County. This celebration includes the return of existing events, several of which have not taken place since 2019, alongside exciting new events and activities, including festivals, concerts, parades, and educational programming. Monroe County is partnering with libraries and historians in its towns, villages and the City of Rochester to educate and bring to life the history of our region.
