About Patriot's Day
Every April on the third Monday of the month, the Battle of Lexington is commemorated and a moving tribute is paid to those patriots who first fell on Lexington Green on the morning of April 19, 1775. A full range of activities is planned that include historical reenactments, parades, pancake breakfasts, and a road race.

Beginning just before midnight Sunday night, the drama begins with the arrival of Paul Revere on horseback to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British Regulars have left Boston and are on their way towards Lexington and Concord.

The highlight is the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington, performed by members of the Lexington Minute Men Company and His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot. Staged annually at 5:45 A.M. every April on the third Monday of the month, the event evokes the revolutionary spirit that signaled the start of the American Revolution.

Visitors are encouraged to arrive early at all events for best viewing.
