Coral Springs Celebrates 60 Years Under the Sun

Coral Cheers for 60 years! The City of Coral Springs is celebrating its 60th Anniversary in style with a series of events and special opportunities throughout 2023, with more planned throughout the summer and fall months.

Our History

Growing from a master-planned “city in the country” to a thriving suburban hub, Coral Springs was first incorporated in 1963 as “the last piece of gold on the gold coast” and has since become home to more than 134,000 residents. Known for celebrating milestone years with a big bash or an attention-grabbing spectacle, city staff Coral Springs has established a long-standing tradition of celebrating its anniversary years with signature events and activities. For its 25th Anniversary in 1988, the city set a Guinness World Record by cooking the World’s Largest Hamburger. At the 40th Anniversary, a giant iced tea was prepared. For its 50th Anniversary, Coral Springs hosted a Campapalooza with the city’s largest Zumba class.

Keep with tradition of implementing larger-than-life plans for celebrating the 60th year, the city hosted a successful, first-ever Campout in January and a lively Community Concert in February. Additional signature events and opportunities to show Coral Springs pride are planned for the coming months.

Upcoming Events

From soft-serve to crafted gelatos, in a cone or in a cup, the Coral Springs Birthday Ice Cream Bash pop-up event will serve summertime treats with a sprinkle of Coral Springs history — taking place on the date that our city was officially chartered – Monday, July 10. Residents may visit select city parks to enjoy pop-up entertainment and snag a free ice cream treat while supplies last. Details will be released on Coral Springs social media accounts leading up to the event.

Mamma Mia! Local pizzerias will be invited to join forces, feed the masses, and compete for awards and bragging rights as part of the City’s Largest Pizza Party, taking place in November 2023. From the healthiest pie to the highest dough toss, and the longest cheese pull, this celebration will aim to serve scrumptious slices and create community camaraderie.
