2021 is the 246th Anniversary of the Battle of Lexington
The Battle of Lexington is commemorated every year on the third Monday in April. We pay tribute to those patriots who first fell on the Lexington Green on the morning of April 19, 1775, and to the courage and fortitude of those who continued the fight throughout the day.
All commemoration will be VIRTUAL – see our schedule of online events.
- Patriots Point Walk: Miles and Smiles
The Town Celebrations Committee (TCC) will supply a map with these destinations marked; participants visit them, track their miles and take smile photos.
- Participate in the Miles & Smiles Contest
In order to participate, you must be able to use a smartphone tracker app, or GPS tracker, and take photos of your tracks. An online registration system will be available on Monday, March 22. Individuals, families or school groups may register through end of day on Monday, April 19.
- CONTEST – Door to Patriotic Spirit
We invite residents across Lexington to decorate the front doors of their homes in a patriotic theme to honor Patriots’ Day.
