Patriots' Day in Lexington
Patriots' Day commemorates the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775. Since 1969 this day has been observed on the third Monday in April.
In 2016, Patriots' Day will be observed on Monday April 18, 2016. The re-enactment of the Battle of Lexington will be held on the Lexington Green starting at 5:30am, the time of the original battle. This year the Patriot's Day Parade will also be held on Monday, April 18th starting at 2pm.
The Dress Rehearsal for the Battle of Lexington reenactment will be Sunday, April 3rd at 2:00 pm on the Battle Green, Lexington Center. This is the dress rehearsal for the Patriots Day reenactment of the skirmish of April 19. 1775. Rain date: Saturday, April 9th at 2:00 pm
Patriots' Day is observed over a period of days before, on, and after the third Monday in April, with The Lexington Minute Men involved in the re-enactment and the Patriots' Day Parade. In Lexington we celebrate this day in high fashion with the reenactment of the Battle accompanied by civic events both before and after the reenactment. It is traditionally the beginning of the year for tourist activities in Lexington.
An excellent listing of all of the day's events in Lexington can be found at the Lexington Historical Society's Patriots' Day in Lexington web page. A listing of all of the events in the communities surrounding the Battle Road can be found at the Battle Road web site
