The Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay is a signature event of Indiana’s 200th anniversary celebration in 2016.  Patterned after the Olympic Torch Relay, Indiana’s version will pass through the state’s 92 counties covering 2,300+ miles over a five-week period averaging approximately 74 miles per day.  Hoosiers who have been nominated by their peers to receive the honor will carry the torch.  This initiative is designed to inspire and unify the state by connecting its people, communities and regions.  It is also designed to symbolically “pass the torch,” connecting past and current generations to future ones.

There will be celebrations in several communities along the route. Festivities will vary from county to county, as communities are encouraged to develop and host their own special celebrations.  An interactive Mobile Visitors Center will be created to enhance the torch’s journey and promote Indiana, its history, attractions and allure.  The relay will culminate in Indianapolis on the Statehouse campus.

We need your help to make the torch relay an exciting and successful event for the community!!
