In honor of Women's History Month, the city will present a speaking engagement with Northglenn native Lt. General Laura Richardson. She is the highest ranking female in the U.S. Army. 

Northglenn incorporated in April, which is also the month of Earth Day and Arbor Day. On April 27 we will have a proclamation, the planting of the first of 50 trees that will be installed throughout the season, children’s activities and other surprises.

Food Truck Carnival takes place May 10 to 12 and will feature special activities to celebrate the anniversary.  

Activities Planned
Sculpture Iron Pour
Guests will be treated to an iron pour, which is a casting of a sculpture.  

Display of Historic Items
We are assembling a gallery of memorabilia in the lower level of City Hall. A display case and surrounding walls will feature old photos, blueprints, architectural plans and other items that were found in the city archives and also loaned by Northglenn residents. 

Tunnel Mural
The Northglenn Arts & Humanities Foundation is leading a mural art project with a theme of 50 years of Northglenn. It will be installed in the pedestrian tunnel that connects the Civic Center and the RTD Park-N-Ride.

Police Challenge Coin and Badge
The Police Department is selling 50th anniversary challenge coins. Funds raised will support production of a 50 years badge to be worn in 2019.

Social Media
A special hashtag (#ng50proud) has been established to encourage the community to follow us and contribute to social media posts for our anniversary year. We’ve also discovered pages dedicated to the Northglenn Mall and Garland Center that welcome followers.

Historic Landmarks
Celebrations dedicated to Karl’s Farm and the historic Stonehocker Farmhouse are planned for this anniversary year.
