The countdown is ON!

We are now TWO YEARS away from 2026! 


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence
July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On July 4, 2026, America will be commemorating the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States of America. In Philadelphia our democracy was born, the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution were signed and the ideals of freedom and self-governance that have guided us for centuries were set. As we celebrate Independence Day with parades, fireworks, and picnics, let us be reminded that what began in Philadelphia remains today because of the grit, ingenuity, and perseverance of our people – from the battlefields of Gettysburg that kept our nation whole, to the steel mills in Pittsburgh and coal mines of Scranton that powered our nation and the world, to Erie’s crucial role in securing our peace in the War of 1812, and beyond. Our spirit is reflected in the quiet strength of the resourceful communities throughout the Commonwealth, enhanced by the diverse experiences of our people.

To celebrate America’s 250th birthday, America250PA was established by the legislature and Governor in 2018 to plan, encourage, develop and coordinate the programs, projects and events commemorating this historic milestone, Pennsylvania’s integral role in that event, and the impact of its people on the nation’s past, present, and future.

America250PA is striving to make 2026 E.P.I.C as we EDUCATE, PRESERVE, INNOVATE, and CELEBRATE Pennsylvania’s rich history, culture and future. We have created impactful programming throughout the Commonwealth to engage ALL Pennsylvanians in ALL 67 counties. Your gift will not only support our ongoing initiatives, but our 2026 celebrations as well.
