Chatham County’s 250th anniversary celebrations will kick off with Founding Day on
Saturday, April 10, 2021, 2 - 5 p.m.
in downtown Pittsboro on Hanks Street.
This drive-thru event will have multiple stations that focus on history and community, with opportunities for community members to share, learn and engage. Participants can also look forward to a birthday party theme. There will be a goody bag, party hat, a pinata raffle, and a sweet treat for community members to take home.
Founding Day is also the start for the Chatham 250 Passport Experience! Participants can pick up a paper copy of the Chatham 250 Passport, which is filled with activities to complete over the next few months.
Founding Day will be free and open to the public and will happen rain or shine.
Special thanks to the Town of Pittsboro for their generous sponsorship of Founding Day!
