Patriots' Day Colonial Fair, Monday, April 18

On Monday, April 18, for the first time since 2017, the City of Somerville will be celebrating Patriots’ Day outdoors and in person at Foss Park on Broadway from 10 to 11:30 a.m. 

This event will feature a reenactment of Paul Revere’s famous ride from Boston to Lexington — which happened to pass right through Somerville!

Attendees will enjoy period-appropriate refreshments and games. They can complete their “Colonial Passports” to win a prize and shop for educational items at the Somerville Museum’s table, all while enjoying music from the Somerville High School band. Colonial clothing is encouraged. 

Interested in helping out with serving refreshments, overseeing games, and generally immersing yourself in the Revolutionary revelry? Email the City’s Executive Director of the Historical Preservation Commission Brandon Wilson at bwilson@somervillema.gov to throw your (tri-cornered) hat into the ring!
