A year long celebration of the Strong Bicentennial took place in 2001. The Strong Bicentennial Committee planned, organized and orchestrated events and activities occurring over the whole year. A pictorial book was published entitled "Strong, Maine 1801-2001 Bicentennial" with photos of different eras of Strong's history.
The Bicentennial Logo was drawn by Ralph Copeland, a local artist. The logo depicts a few significant points in the heritage of Strong including: a Native American origin, the narrow gauge railroad, logging, hunting, fishing, blueberries and pine trees.
