The City of Woodland is celebrating its 150th Anniversary! ("Sesquicentennial") this year. The City of Woodland incorporated on February 22, 1871. The City is proud to celebrate Woodland's history, people, businesses, culture, public services, and future. The theme for this yearlong celebration is “CELEBRATE WOODLAND”. Celebrating our community is a way to remember our vibrant past and look forward to our bright future. 

The Celebrate Woodland Committee is planning a series of Sesquicentennial events to bring our community together to discover our history, honor our diversity, and celebrate our future.

The Celebrate Woodland Committee has launched a website,, to highlight the history of community, display upcoming events, and share ways to get involved. 

To kick off the celebration, we are hosting two virtual events:

  • T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST: The Celebrate Woodland Committee in partnership with SorD Boardshop will be having a T-Shirt logo design contest. T-shirt logo designs can be submitted until April 23, 2021. 
  • YOUTH BIRTHDAY CARD CONTEST: Help us wish the City of Woodland a happy 150th birthday by participating in our Youth Birthday Card Contest! The Woodland Celebration Committee is calling all youth to participate in designing their very own birthday card for Woodland. Birthday cards can be submitted until June 1, 2021.
