About Us

SB150 is a yearlong, community-wide celebration of our rich history as we forge our promising future.

SB150 will:

  • Emphasize and celebrate the role South Bend has played in our nation’s history.
  • Show off our best in arts, culture, heritage, travel and car rental
  • Motivate people to take part in the yearlong celebrations and increase citizen engagement.
  • Leave a positive legacy for South Bend residents to continue to build on our proud history.

Residents and organizations are encouraged to help celebrate South Bend’s milestone by hosting their own events throughout the year, from small neighborhood gatherings to sponsored community-wide festivals. Events can be simple or complex, and could include:

Attaching the SB150 logo to your advertising and promoting it through the SB150 marketing channels.

Hosting an event or offering product specials that cost $1.50.

Adapting the theme of an event to be “South Bend’s Past, Present, Future.”

Working 150 into your event/activity/travel exhibit performance—i.e., 150 great artists, 150 days of art, 150 different techniques, and so on.

Dedicating a play, performance, or piece of art to South Bend.

Adding a float to an existing parade, themed to reflect South Bend’s past, present, future.

Organizing a group project designed to make the city a better place.
