The Bicentennial of Shelby County will be celebrated on Sunday, November 24 with a free event at Shelby Farms, the urban park that’s the jewel of Shelby County.

What began as a rural farming center with about 300 residents 200 years ago has grown to encompass seven municipalities that over 900,000 residents call home, and has made a lasting impact on every corner of the world.

The best local talent from Memphis, Germantown, Bartlett, Collierville, Arlington, Millington and Lakeland will be on hand for this county-wide birthday party (complete with cake!), and visitors can enjoy a few exciting surprises to end the celebration with a “bang.”

Be sure to visit each community area to discover more about the cities and towns that make Shelby County great as we Celebrate 200 Years and a New Century of Possibilities!
