Come Celebrate Belleville's Bicentennial in the Year 2014

It's hard to believe that Belleville is 200 years old! (1814 – 2014) In addition to the usual yearly festivities, we have several special, Bicentennial events planned throughout the year. There should be something for everyone; best of all, most will be FREE to the public. In order to achieve our goals, we need as many volunteers as possible. Check out our site to discover how you might help become a part of history.
