Ann Arbor Shares A200 Bicentennial March Events

Archived News Release: February 29, 2024 - ​The City of Ann Arbor is thanking all who celebrated the city by attending the Jan. 19 kickoff event at the Michigan Theatre, noting it was a night to remember, and just the first of many fun, unifying and meaningful activities planned this year. Here's what's happening in March.

March 1–31, Host a Book Drive with United Way

United Way works to ensure that families have the resources to help their children start school ready to learn and graduate prepared for success in life. We know that to ensure the future success of our region, we need to support our community's children now. Access to books is a key part of the equation, as research shows that children with access to ample reading materials have increased literacy at an earlier age and are more prepared for school at all levels. To celebrate Ann Arbor's bicentennial, United Way for Southeastern Michigan has set a goal to collect 200 books for organizations in Washtenaw county. Spanish language and bilingual (Spanish/English) books are of particularly high need! Learn more.

Saturday, March 16, 7:30–8:30 p.m. Genesis of Ann Arbor (2309 Packard St.)

Vocal Arts Ensemble of Ann Arbor Presents: Voices of Ann Arbor
Vocal Arts Ensemble of Ann Arbor celebrates the Ann Arbor bicentennial with a concert and reception to follow featuring some of the city's great composers and poets, past and present. From its German heritage, its locus as a stop on the Underground Railroad, and its role as a hub of sixties protest, Ann Arbor's musical bounty is rich indeed. Interweaving powerful choral music with percussion and the spoken word, this unique program brings to life the music of Ann Arbor's history and the history of its music. With guests Malcolm Tulip and Michael Gould, Jennifer Goltz, Zilka Joseph, Jeff Kass and more. Get tickets.
