West Virginia Department of Commerce SESQUICENTENNIAL Event form



June 20, 2013

The 150th birthday of West Virginia will be on June 20, 2013.  In order to promote activities to the motorcoach industry and trade publications, we need to start gathering the event information now.  As your communities plan local events, please complete this form.  The information will become available online for consumer use and will be distributed through the State Welcome Centers.

Activities do not have to take place just on June 20.  Some suggestions would be a birthday party (fair, picnic, carnival, parade, etc.) on the day your town became incorporated, the birthday of someone famous from your area, or the birthdate of something special opening.
