Add your centennial commemoration event or activity to the national register

Director of Public Affairs, U.S. World War One Centennial Commission
Did you know that you can add your own World War I-themed events to our Events Calendar?
The WW1CC U.S. National WW1 Centennial Events Register U.S. National WW1 Centennial Events Register is a living document of exhibits, commemorations, and events happening around the entire country. It is designed to help people find local things to see & participate in during the centennial period.
The Register is the primary register for nationwide World War I Centennial observances...you can search by dates, states, and locations to see community events are scheduled for this historical observance. These observances are registered by people just like you.
You can take an active role in our national observance by adding events you organize to this register. You develop a plan of action and event to help our nation remember, and you register it, informing millions of Americans to help you bring our nation together to commemorate the centennial.
If you have only one or just a few events, the easiest way to get them into the Register is to go to the Submit An Event page and fill in the interactive form. Once approved by the moderator, you events will join the hundreds of others already recorded in the Registry, which will be part of the permanent record of the Commission.
If you are a member of an organization with a large number of Centennial events through 2019, consider becoming an "Event Publishing Partner" to easily post and manage your multiple events on the Registry. Click here for more information on becoming an Event Publishing Partner.
You can add your voice by bringing our nation together to remember and honor the Great War. You can post your event and you can search to join others with the same goal.
Bring Americans together as you plan, develop, and execute your community activities. Go to www.1CC.org today and click on the “Commemorate” link to find other events and add yours.
