Boone County Bicentennial Committee Releases First Bicentennial Celebration Video

September 18, 2019—The Boone County Bicentennial Committee is happy to announce that the celebration of Boone County’s Bicentennial has gone virtual! A series of videos celebrating the rich history of Boone County’s 200 years has been created by Bussen Productions and will be released throughout the rest of the Bicentennial Year. A preview video of the series is available here.

Over two years ago, the Boone County Bicentennial Committee began making plans to create a memorable experience for all citizens of Boone County. A variety of live productions, events and ceremonies were planned throughout the County, with a focus on sharing the many diverse aspects of Boone County. However, as 2020 became a year no one will forget, social gatherings were canceled and plans were adapted to be able to still reach Boone County citizens from a safe distance.

This video is just a preview of the series, which will be released throughout the rest of 2020 as Boone County continues to celebrate 200 years. For more information about Boone County’s Bicentennial Celebration, please visit
