Plymouth 400 renews commitment to mark 400th anniversary with new event plans and ongoing legacy projects.
Press Release from Plymouth 400:
Plymouth 400, Inc., the Massachusetts-based nonprofit who since 2009 has led the planning and execution of programs and events commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage and the founding of Plymouth Colony in 1620 is adjusting to the oft-discussed “new normal”. Pandemic or not, the Plymouth 400 commemoration has begun and will continue, albeit in different ways, through 2021 which is also the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving. History is not only being honored but it’s being made and Plymouth 400 has made it clear that they intend to be part of it—in the safest, most appropriate ways possible. Transforming actual events into virtual ones and holding live events in 2021 allows the commemoration to move forward while offering an opportunity for businesses to focus on welcoming visitors back in a safe way when the time is right.
While the situation could change based on guidance from local and state officials, the full rundown on Plymouth 400 Signature Events follows:
