Celebrating

150 Years

Brevard welcomes the New Year and looks forward to a spectacular 2018 as the City celebrates its’ 150th anniversary! This community is “above average” because of organizations like yours and I thank you!

There are so many worthy organizations operating in this outstanding community, I believe there will be a lot of activities for all to enjoy leading up to one larger event/party to be hosted by the City of Brevard later in the year. Details to follow…but I’m already excited!

What People are Saying

“150 years after our founding, Brevard continues to be a special place where our beautiful, natural surroundings embrace a community that takes great pride in our arts, music, education, and recreation opportunities. We must continue to make sound decisions as a community so future generations can enjoy the Brevard we have come to love.”

Jim Fatland
City Manager

“The City of Brevard celebrates 150th years of continued municipal government. Some things have changed such as population, transportation, communication and level of services but in another way many things have stayed the same. Brevard still attracts those who dream big dreams and have great optimism for the future and are willing to continue to work hard to make Brevard it’s best. I often say Brevard is an above average community. It is because of the people here. I believe we are blessed to be here in Brevard and have a lot to be grateful for. It is a special place and I pray that the next 150 years brings great prosperity, health and hope for all its citizens.”
