Sesquicentennial Steering Committee

Maynard’s 50th Anniversary in 1921

The Sesquicentennial Steering Committee is an ad-hoc committee formed by the Town Administrator for the purposes of planning the 150th Anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Maynard in 2021.

This committee was formed in September 2017 and generally meets on the first Monday of the month.  The Steering Committee provides quarterly updates to the Board of Selectmen.

The Sesquicentennial slogan is:


Maynard: 150 Years of Community and Culture


Participate in Maynard’s 150th Anniversary

How You Can Help

The Sesquicentennial Steering Committee is seeking help from residents and businesses to help make our celebration is a success.  We are actively seeking people to help out in the following areas:

  • Anniversary Parade (tentatively scheduled for late September 2021): we are seeking people interested in helping us organize the parade: getting organizations and businesses to participate with floats, etc., organizing marching bands and other musical entertainment, coordinating with public safety.
  • Celebration Concert (tentatively schedule for September 18 or 25, 2021): we are seeking individuals who can help book artist(s) for a concert (probably at Alumni Field), advertising, coordinating refreshments, restrooms and public safety.

We are organizing a few subcommittees to help bring all the pieces together for a great celebration.  If you would like to become part of the planning teams, please fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you on when/how you can help.


Upcoming Event

The Maynard Sesquicentennial Committee invites you to join us for a Drive-In Movie on October 3 at 7pm at the Fowler School parking lot! We are excited to offer a free, socially distanced viewing of Back To The Future on the big (outdoor) screen.  The event – sponsored by the Committee and the Maynard Fine Arts Theater Place, and in partnership with the Maynard Cultural Council and the Maynard Film Festival – is a free event to celebrate the town of Maynard and offer a fun, safe community activity.
