Patriots' Day in Lexington 2019 is the 244th Anniversary of the Battle of Lexington

The Battle of Lexington is commemorated every year on the third Monday in April. The highlight is a historical reenactment of the battle that pays tribute to those patriots who first fell on the Lexington Green on the morning of April 19, 1775. It is performed by members of the Lexington Minute Men Company and His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot.

We are currently looking for event sponsors, parade ambassadors* and applications to participate in the parade.

Current Schedule of Events but check back often as this will change!

Parade Ambassadors are community volunteers who carry a sponsor’s banner in front of a marching unit during the afternoon parade.  As Parade Ambassador, you are part of one of the Town’s most important traditions.

Parade Ambassadors assemble on Patriots' Day at the East Lexington Fire Station at 1:15 PM.. Members of the Celebrations Committee greet you, assign you to a team (if you are not already part of a team), give you your banner, and escort you to your place in the parade lineup.
You are expected to complete the entire 2.5 mile parade route which takes approximately 1 to 2 hours start to finish, depending on your placement in the lineup.
