Our mission is to launch a year-long celebration of Gloucester befitting its remarkable 400th anniversary.

And not just one celebration -- a series of celebrations involving and originating from our entire community. Because this celebration belongs to all of us, it is essential that every home, business, organization, and association receive our encouragement and support.


What better way to celebrate Gloucester’s story than to tell the stories of the people who lived, sacrificed, rejoiced, worked, built, and innovated together – sometimes risking everything -- since 1623? The spirit of those people lives on today in each of us and is the reason the spirit of Gloucester has remained young and vibrant, looking enthusiastically to the future while honoring the heritage and traditions that strengthen and sustain us.
