Interactive Events, Oral History Project Celebrate Sugar Land’s 60th Anniversary

Sugar Land, TX – An oral history exhibition and multiple interactive events are among the celebratory events planned by Sugar Land to mark its 60 anniversary on Dec. 29. 

An outdoor exhibit featuring oral histories and portraits celebrating the city’s past 60 years is on display for the public through early January at Sugar Land Town Square. The city received its first-ever National Endowment for the Arts grant to help fund the oral history project – a component of Sugar Land’s Public Art Plan and the result of a collaboration with community partners such as the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation and the Fort Bend Historical Commission. An online version is viewable at www.sugarlandtx.gov/SLOralHistory.

The public may also celebrate the city’s 60th birthday by:

  • submitting a short video through Dec. 20 explaining what’s special about Sugar Land for a chance to win prizes and have the videos featured in a special compilation (see contest rules, prize information and submit videos at www.sugarlandtx.gov/LoveSL);
  • “Following the Sugar Land Way” and being among the first to submit selfie photos at specific locations throughout the city to win 60th anniversary-themed prizes (see contest information and rules at www.sugarlandtx.gov/SLWaySelfie); and
  • attending free “pop-up” parties in collaboration with five local sweet eateries – The Sweet Boutique, Kilwin’s, Decadent Coffee and Dessert Bar, Churned Creamery, and Stacked Ice Cream -- and enjoy complimentary custom sweet bites, chances to win 60th anniversary-themed prizes and more (dates, times and location of each pop-up party are available at www.visitsugarlandtx.com).  

For more information and the full list of 60th Anniversary celebrations, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/CelebrateSL, or call 311 or (281) 275-2900.
