Suppose that a group of your friends is telling you that tomorrow's celebration marks the anniversary of their last hockey championship.

(ex) How many years is the anniversary?

Will this question elicit the following response?

They reply, "the 22nd anniversary".

Is my question correct? If not, what is the correct way to ask the question? Thanks for your help.

    The usual question is "Which anniversary is it?", since there is another one each year, just like birthdays.

    But your example question would be understood clearly.
