Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Happy 200th Birthday, Indiana!



We are celebrating with 200 Days of Birthdays. Every day we will post a video of Hoosiers from around the state wishing Indiana a happy birthday. This is your chance to be a part of the Bicentennial! Submit your own video telling us how you are celebrating.

Happy Birthday, Indiana! There may not be a birthday cake big enough to hold 200 candles, so Ball State is producing a Field Trip in your honor instead.

Ball State is hitting the road - from Steuben County to Posey County, cruising I-65 from north to south, and stopping at all the local diners along SR40’s National Road - to bring you the story of Indiana’s Bicentennial. Ball State Field Trips will be delivering stories of Indiana’s pioneers from the last 200 years. Stories of early settlers. Stories of visionaries and innovators. Stories of the next generation of pioneers. Plan to join us for some fascinating Indiana history, and probably more than one stop for pork tenderloin sandwiches.

You can learn more about their field trips program by visiting: http://bsufieldtrips.org/

To view all the videos visit our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXC7TNxT16Voajjaz-VfEvQ.

Celebrate History. Ignite the Future.

Indiana's 2016 Bicentennial celebration aims to honor our state’s 200 years of history, and to do so in a modern way that engages all 6.5 million Hoosiers and leaves a lasting legacy for future generations.
