Hot Springs 100th Anniversary as a National Park - 2021 Centennial Event
Location: Hot Springs Convention Center
Celebrate 100 years of Hot Springs as a National Park at the March 4th Anniversary Celebration! Hot Springs National Park turns 100 years old on March 4, 2021, and to celebrate this milestone anniversary, the City of Hot Springs, will deliver an official proclamation via horse-drawn carriage declaring March 4th as “Hot Springs National Park Day.” The Friends Of Hot Springs National Park will provide birthday cupcakes from 11:00am – 3:00pm on the front porch of the Fordyce Bathhouse (the park Visitor Center – 369 Central Ave.) Residents and visitors alike can also take their photos in a birthday-themed photo booth while they are there. The park will release a special anniversary video on social media in conjunction with the event at the Fordyce. For everyone’s safety, facemasks are required on federal lands and visitors are reminded to maintain social distancing wherever possible.
A centennial celebration such as this only occurs once every 100 years! Mark your calendars and make plans to join in on the celebrations all year long, either in person or online.
