Abstract: This paper describes the organising of a 50th anniversary of an urban community. The focus is specifically on how ideas of identity related to a past were manifested in various events. The organising of the anniversary is described in terms of temporary organising, where the activities of different actors form the basis for how the anniversary is conceptualised and performed. The study was conducted using an ethnographic approach.

Keywords: anniversary; event management; temporary organising; identity; municipality; garden city
