Mayor Craig A. Moe encourages everyone to help us celebrate 150 years of incorporation in 2020!

At the beginning of each month, we will send out a public service announcement letting you know what events will be happening that month!

In January 2020:

  • The Mayor and City Council of Laurel will kick off the City’s 150th Anniversary Celebration at their first meeting of the year on January 13th at 6:00pm in the Council Chambers of the Laurel Municipal Center at 8103 Sandy Spring Road. 
  • At the meeting, the 150th Committee will reveal the celebration’s theme and highlight some of the year’s events. These will include the Laurel Museum’s 150th Exhibit Opening, a Scavenger Hunt, Time Capsule Opening, 150th Anniversary Gala, A Day at the Races, Laurel Anniversary Run/Walk, Celebrate Laurel Today: A Multicultural Celebration and many others!
  • In addition, be one of the first to get the Anniversary Passport that will guide you through the year, so you can receive as many stamps as possible to be eligible for a drawing for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in different age categories at the end of the year!
