ABOUT PATRIOTS WEEK
In Trenton, New Jersey’s Capital City provides the unique opportunity for residents and tourists to experience the events that shaped our nation during Patriots Week. The Trenton Downtown Association works closely with neighboring sites in the area to bring the most comprehensive historical experience to life for those of all ages and backgrounds. Through the immersive experience that is Patriots Week, the TDA commemorates and recognizes Trenton’s unique and pivotal role in the American Revolution. A role that has shaped some of the very streets and buildings that can still be seen standing today as they were in 1776.
Patriots Week is held annually from December 26 – December 31 during the week between Christmas and New Year’s and attracts thousands of visitors to the city to enjoy historical tours, a pub crawl, colonial ball, lectures, films, art, music, battlefield re-enactments, and living history events. This year use your holiday break for a fun & history-filled family staycation!
With over 50 events taking place during the six-day period it’s easy for families and history aficionados to spend a few days in Central New Jersey this December.
