Our week long celebration will be launched with an opening ceremony at noon on July 20 in front of Ellsworth’s historic City Hall which will include remarks from state and local dignitaries, the unveiling of a Sestercentennial plaque, and cake!

Events scheduled for the weeklong celebration include the Rotary Blueberry Pancake Breakfast, a motorcycle ride-in and barbecue, a Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours and grand finale fireworks show, to name just a few. Most of these events will be centrally located in a large tent on the Knowlton Park close to downtown Ellsworth.

It's not too late to become involved. Organizers are inviting other businesses and groups to get involved. For more information, contact Thelma Beal at 667-4664 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
