For example, recent contests covered the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, the 100th Anniversary of the Women's Vote, and the 400th Anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower.

Commemorative Events

  • Independence Day - July 4th: Individual members and chapters should plan ways to celebrate the Fourth of July, our Patriots and the signing of the Declaration of Independence: fly flags, enjoy picnics, watch fireworks, participate in community celebrations (and if you are in lucky enough to be in Washington, D.C., consider marching with DAR in the Nation’s Independence Day Parade).

  • 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, 2012 - 2025: Chapters are encouraged to continue to recognize Vietnam-era servicemen and women.  Be sure to become a commemorative partner of The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, sponsored by the Department of Defense. By Presidential Proclamation, this Commemoration will continue through Veterans Day, November 11, 2025.


  • 200th Anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail - 2021: The Santa Fe Trail was an 800-mile trade route, begun in 1821 by Trader William Becknall in Independence, Missouri, and extending to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The trail helped to open the region to economic development and settlement, playing a vital role in the expansion of the United States. The route is commemorated today by the National Park Service as the Santa Fe National Historic Trail.

  • 100th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - 11 November 2021: The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery is dedicated to U.S. service members who have died with their remains unidentified. The Unknown Soldiers laid to rest at the Tomb represent all missing and unknown service members who made the ultimate sacrifice – they not only gave their lives, but also their identities to protect these freedoms. The Tomb is the final resting place for Unknowns from World War I, World War II and the Korean War, and it is guarded at all times. The Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier is located in Philadelphia . That memorial honors the thousands of soldiers who died during the American Revolution, many of whom were buried nearby in mass graves.

  • America 250!

    We stand on the eve of a grand commemoration. In July 2026, the United States will mark its 250th anniversary – and DAR is preparing to celebrate in a big way!

    The National Society has established the America 250! Committee to plan DAR's involvement during our nation's upcoming 250th birthday. Much like the Bicentennial celebration of 1976, this observance provides an exceptional opportunity for community involvement. DAR chapters will work to leave a lasting impact on their communities through meaningful local projects and events during this anniversary.

    DAR is thrilled to be represented on the United States Semiquincentennial Commission, and looks forward to working with the Commission to help plan nationwide celebrations worthy of this momentous milestone.
