The year 1968 wasn’t only a watershed moment for the United States, it also launched the evolution of modern Scottsdale.

That’s the year Scottsdale’s City Hall and Civic Center Library opened on a brambly landscape that would grow to become the Civic Center Mall.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of these iconic landmarks, Scottsdale is throwing a party — a modern day take on the original community celebration held when the buildings opened in 1968.

“Scottsdale Celebrate ‘68” will unfold in Old Town over the course of several days in October.
