Bicentennial Celebration

The City of Fernandina Beach, along with Fernandina Beach Main Street, Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Historic District Council, the Amelia Island Museum of History, and the Amelia Island- Fernandina Restoration Foundation are collaborating to bring you a commemorative year of events. 

Fernandina Beach was established on January 1, 1825. To celebrate its impending 200th birthday, we are collaborating with local organizations to bring you a series of activities throughout 2024 which culminate with a City-wide party on January 1, 2025. 

The Fernandina 200 Steering Committee is looking for a variety of diverse activities that will attract residents and visitors. Possible activity ideas include hosting a scavenger hunt, live performances, creation of a time capsule, artifact displays, children’s events, holiday-centered events, home walking tours, old-time photo booths, musical performances, local culture culinary offerings, genealogy discussions, or art exhibits and competitions.
