Celebrating a Century: The 100th Anniversary of the Republic of Turkiye

October 29, 2023 marks a century since the establishment of the Turkish Republic, a symbol of resilience, unity, and progress. From the ashes of empires past, a new nation arose, guided by the visionary leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and the relentless spirit of its people.

For 100 years, Turkiye has stood as a testament to the power of transformation, the importance of secularism, and the boundless potential of a nation united in purpose. From the echoing calls of the muezzin to the bustling streets of Istanbul; from the ancient ruins of Ephesus to the modern skylines of Ankara — Turkiye is a blend of history and progress, tradition and innovation.

On October 29, 2023 House of Turkiye and ATASC-SD will host celebration of the 100th anniversary of Turkish Republic at Balboa Park.
