The mission of Gloucester400+ is to commemorate, celebrate, and promote knowledge of Gloucester’s 400+ years of cultural, social, ethnic, and economic diversity. The year 2023 marks 400 years in the history of America’s oldest seaport recognizing its settlement by English colonizers in 1623. The theme of the quadricentennial “Our People, Our Stories” focuses on commemorating Gloucester’s history through the lives of all those who lived here, including but not limited to the Pawtucket peoples, English colonists, free and enslaved Africans, and European and Latinx immigrants who have all shaped and been shaped by the place that is now called Gloucester. The goal of the anniversary is to be truthful in respectfully acknowledging and telling its complex story. The theme of “Our People, Our Stories” will happen during 2022 and 2023 in three categories: The 400 Stories Project, Events & Special Projects, a Partners Program.
