In October 1992, the Cleveland Bicentennial Commission was established in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Moses Cleveland’s arrival at Cuyahoga River on July 22, 1976. This commission was created to encourage the widest possible involvement of the people of Greater Cleveland in the bicentennial celebration to have citizens feel welcomed in the pride and commemoration of Cleveland’s history and future.

The United States Bicentennial was a series of celebrations during the mid-1970s that paid tribute to the historical events of the development of the United States as an independent republic. The bicentennial culminated with the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1976.
