300th Anniversary Celebration Events

300th Anniversary Logo

The South Kingstown Town Council established the 300th Anniversary Steering Committee to organize and plan the celebration of the Town's 300th (1723-2023) anniversary milestone. The committee - represented by residents, businesses, students, and cultural, educational, faith-based, civic, and nonprofit organizations will meet monthly, and as needed, beginning in the Fall 2021 through late the Fall 2023 to plan and implement multiple commemorative year-long programs, projects, and events.

 Through a year-long array of diverse programs, the committee will highlight the Town's rich past and treasures, celebrate the achievements of its people, and create a legacy of memorable, philanthropic, and creative opportunities for its residents and visitors alike. At the end of the anniversary celebration there will be a greater understanding and appreciation of what makes South Kingstown truly special.
