Gloucester’s 400th Anniversary: “Our People, Our Stories™”
Gloucester, Massachusetts, America’s oldest seaport, will be “400 years young” in 2023. To celebrate its past, honor its people, and welcome its promising future, the city has already begun preparations for celebrating this historic milestone and organizing the year-long celebration of its anniversary. The theme of the quadricentennial is Gloucester: Our People, Our Stories™ and focuses on celebrating Gloucester’s history through the stories of the people who lived, sacrificed, rejoiced, worked, built, and innovated together – at times risking everything — since 1623. Gloucester400™ is the steering committee established by the citizens of Gloucester, working collaboratively with the City to guide and coordinate an exceptional year of festivities.
