The City of Victoria will turn 200 next year, and the City is inviting visitors and residents to celebrate our bicentennial by taking part in festivities all year long.
One special day you won't want to miss is our official 200th Anniversary date, April 13, 2024.
That's right - on that date, 200 years ago, empresario Martín de León received approval from the Mexican Government to found the colony of Nuestra Señora Guadalupe de Jesús Victoria in the state of Coahuila y Tejas.
To start our bicentennial date, the City will host the Victoria Day of Caring, a communitywide service project; the day will continue with the De Leon Statue Dedication and Plaza Expansion Ribbon Cutting.
After a long day of fantastic events, it's time to party! The City will host the Bicentennial Ball, presented by Prosperity Bank at the Victoria Community Center, a ticketed event that will include food and drinks, live entertainment, and a celebration of all things Victoria.
We are seeking extra support from our community to make this event the best that it can be. Please consider joining this once-in-a-lifetime celebration of Victoria by becoming a sponsor or underwriter at one of the tiers listed at https://www.explorevictoriatexas.com/p/victoriatx2...
