Maine's 200th anniversary of Statehood is in 2020, and the Maine Bicentennial Commission is leading the State's Official Commemoration at its information and resource site at

The Bicentennial offers an exciting opportunity to experience, explore and celebrate Maine. In that spirit, this site is a project in progress, building up to Maine's 200th alongside the making of a documentary film, Shape Of Love: 200 Years In Maine.

My name is Tonya, I’m a Maine native and I like writing about Maine and telling Maine stories. I’ve been excited about the Bicentennial for a while, and if you’re excited about it, I hope you will enjoy this site. It will grow with features and news, stories, links to resources, and other things for fun and love in Maine.
