August 10, 2021, marks the two hundredth anniversary of Missouri’s entry as the 24th state of the United States. A state with many different regional cultures, geographies, and industries, we celebrate the accomplishments and diversity of all these regions while seeking to create a better understanding of our one Missouri and the ties that bind us together. Join us on the front steps of the Missouri State Capitol for a formal ceremony marking the two hundredth anniversary of Missouri statehood.

We will also present the official Missouri Bicentennial stamp which was developed by the United States Postal Service and is available beginning in 2021.
