The Route 66 Centennial is a once in a 100-year opportunity and the Road Ahead invites you to the party the Route 66 Road Ahead Partnership is planning for this historic milestone.
Our Party With a Purpose aims to celebrate, commemorate, and honor Route 66 by helping the millions of people who live, work, and travel along it.
And what’s a party without presents? Our presents includes activities, commemorations, and a series of programs focused on preservation, tourism promotion, research/education, and the economic development of Route 66.
During the Centennial period we are striving to preserve, maintain, restore, and return to use historic properties along the Route 66 corridor. To assist with that we have developed the
"ROUTE 66 HISTORIC PRESERVATION TOOL KITS"
Celebrate the women-owned businesses of Route 66 during the Mother Road’s Centennial. “Apply” for a micro-grant or “Donate” to support the program.
These grants help Black owned and/or operated businesses, and support research and programs designed to interpret and tell the stories of Black experiences associated with Route 66
