On January 26, 1915, President Woodrow Wilson signed the bill that established Rocky Mountain National Park. Nearly 100 years later, the park is gearing up for a blowout centennial celebration.

The party starts on September 4, 2014, with an official kickoff and culminates in a rededication ceremony on September 4, 2015.

In between, look for art shows, naturalist programs, anniversary group hikes, concerts, historic car shows, and many more special events in honor of Rocky Mountain’s 100th birthday.
