About the 350th Celebration Committee


What are we: The Wallingford 350th Jubilee Celebration Committee is a town committee formed to plan events and commemorate the town's founding in the year 2020. Here's a sneak peek at the Volunteer list of dedicated organizations, town committees, and residents volunteering on a variety of events. We invite you to complete our form and add your talents to this great celebration!


How we started: Our Town owes a great amount of gratitude to past Jubilee Committees, their chairpeople and the countless volunteers and sponsors who blazed such a rich template to duplicate. With those memories and much memorabilia to review, a few citizens started to brainstorm the 350th anniversary concept in 2016.  The Honorable Mayor Bill Dickinson convened a few volunteers to discuss, and requested Town Council approval in March, 2016 to form the Wallingford 350th Jubilee Committee.

As a part of this special community, be a part of history on our march to June, 2020!


All community organizations and individuals are joining the cause! Organization of planning committees & events is underway for one to two events each year leading to the Jubilee. Additionally a week-long schedule of activities will be planned for June, 2020, with volunteer, event hosting, and sponsorship opportunities available. All are invited to join the 350th!


  • Headquarters & Store ~ Our meeting Headquarters is the HubCap, located at 128 Center Street, which will host the official 350 Official Store, volunteer registration form location and schedule of events.


  • Public Notice ~ Public Notice of committee meeting notices, agendas and minutes are posted publicly with at least 2 days in advance with “SPECIAL MEETING” at the top of the meeting notice through: Town Clerk office - townclerk@wallingfordct.gov; Program Planning for the web site - towngov@wallingfordct.gov; and the 350th Website.

The town has grown in size since the last Jubilee -- how will your committee organize and reach everyone? 

While we meet face to face and plan events, we will harness technology advancements as a paperless committee, as well as community partnerships and special events.
