On December 29, 1959, Sugar Land was officially incorporated. Some of our City staff, community members and local dance groups couldn't help but break out in song and dance just thinking about this major milestone! View our special music video created in honor of the City's 60th Anniversary.
Join us in commemorating the occasion by participating in one or more of the events and activities listed below.

The Sugar Land Way happens every day in Sugar Land - whether it's your friendly neighbor who is always spreading cheer to others, a stranger paying it forward in the grocery store line or a public servant going above and beyond the call of duty. In honor of the City's 60th anniversary on December 29, 2019, the City launched a formal way for the community to share their Sugar Land Way stories. The initiative focuses on celebrating all of the things that make Sugar Land such a unique and special place.
Many of our celebration activities included ways to win prizes in the form of exclusive 60th Anniversary Swag (while supplies last). Prizes included one or more of the following, depending on the contest:
