Westarctica's 20th Anniversary Celebration
Westarctica's 20th Anniversary Celebration is an event that will occur on 6 November 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The purpose of the event is to celebrate Westarctica's 20 years of history as an independent nation-state. The theme of the event will be "20 Years on Ice."
Planning for the event began during Royal Council meetings in 2019. Most ministers favored an extravagant event, tentatively called the "Glacier Ball." However, due to the events of 2020 and the COVID-19 restrictions on travel and public gatherings, it was later decided to tone down the event and make it a small gathering of devoted Westarctican citizens. Details of the event were finalized and the location of Charlotte, North Carolina was chosen in June 2021. Registration was opened and announced to citizens on 18 July 2021.
