Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial

July 9, 2016

Pgh200_4cPittsburgh was incorporated as a City on March 18, 1816.

In 2016 Pittsburgh will celebrate its Bicentennial – the 200th anniversary of its incorporation as a City. The Mayor is planning a celebration, to be held on July 9, 2016 – because on that date in 1816, our first Mayor, Ebenezer Denny, was sworn into office.

The celebration will take place at Point State Park and will begin with a Parade going down Liberty Ave. to the park.
