100th Anniversary Celebration
Wilderness, Wildlife, Wonder:
On September 4, 1915, excited visitors and special guests gathered in Horseshoe Park to celebrate the dedication of America's newest playground, Rocky Mountain National Park. Signed into law on January 26 of that same year by Woodrow Wilson, Rocky Mountain National Park would forever protect the incredible resources found within its boundaries so that future generations might also benefit from its beauty and wildness.
From September 4, 2014, through September 4, 2015, Rocky Mountain National Park along with local and national communities will be celebrating the park's 100th Anniversary. Speakers, special activities, and community events are being coordinated to commemorate the Centennial. Official 100th Anniversary programs and events will be listed on our Centennial Calendar.
Whether you're a regular visitor, a national park traveler, or a virtual explorer, Rocky Mountain National Park hopes that our 100th Anniversary will inspire you to experience and connect with the park and its rich cultural and natural history. Tour Trail Ridge Road, set off on a hike, attend a Centennial program or event, or find a Ranger Program that speaks to you. Discover the wilderness, wildlife, and wonder that has inspired 100 years of protection and that will continue to enchant and delight visitors and stewards of Rocky Mountain National Park for another 100 years!
The Centennial Celebration is still over a year away, but you can stay informed about 100th Anniversary planning and events by checking this page regularly and by reading our 100th Anniversary Newsletter.
