Stay Up to Date With Texarkana’s Sesquicentennial Year Long Celebration
Get ready Texarkana to celebrate our town's Sesquicentennial next year.
The Sesquicentennial Committee, also known as TXK150, is in the process of making a calendar and website that will keep everyone informed of the TXK150 events that are being planned throughout the year.
The TXK150 website will partner up with gotxk.org/txk150. You can also check their Facebook page at txk150. Of course, we at Townsquare Media will keep you up to date on events on our website and on the air too.
The current list of events scheduled by the Sesquicentennial Committee are listed below so be sure to mark your 2023 calendars as soon as you can.
- Centennial Time Capsule/Sesquicentennial Festival – April 14 and 15. This event will have live music and a display of items that were put in the Centennial Time Capsule that was buried in Sheppard Park back in 1973.
- Sesquicentennial Ball - July 8. This will be a 1920s-themed ball that will commemorate the ball that was held in Texarkana back in 1926 during the Sesquicentennial Celebration of the United States.
- Founders’ Week Celebration - December 4 through December 11. This will include the annual Main Street Christmas Parade. Also on the schedule during this time will be Texarkana! “The Musical” at Silvermoon on Broad. There will be more events scheduled too as we celebrate the history of Texarkana USA.
If your organization or business would like to participate in the TXK150 celebration with your own events or giveaways, and commemorations please submit the information to the TXK150 Committee. The approved community events will then be included in the quarterly calendars throughout the year.
