Celebrating 201 Years!  1820~ 2021

In 2020 Sandusky County turned 200 years old and with that milestone came a global pandemic.  5 years of planning events and celebrations was put on hold while everyone social distanced, wore masks and stayed home.  Well here we are over a year later in the spring of 2021 and we have turned the corner, vaccinations are open to everyone and the county is opening back up.  With that great news come the Bicentennial+1 events to kick of celebrations and local history themed events that were unable to be held last year. We thank our community for their support and especially thank our many dedicated committee member who have experienced some of the most challenging obstacles that any committee could face, yet rode out the storm and continued to push forward with Bicentennial Celebration plans.

Final Bicentennial Events Scheduled for fall of 2021

Grand Slam Banquet Event Tickets

Who can say they were able to celebrate their Bicentennial for 2 years?  Sandusky County Can!  We have enjoyed taking our rich history to the people of the community through the many festivals and events we have attended with our traveling museum. We shared the story of Sandusky County by hosting the Black Swamp History Festival, the State of Eight Vintage Baseball and now look forward to one final event to close out this historic celebration!
