Linger in Lexington at “Revolutionary Revelry,” a dynamic month-long festival celebrating the arts, culture, and recreation throughout Lexington. Held during May, the Revolutionary Revelry calendar is packed with daily events and activities – there’s something for everyone. Dance around the Maypole or make a floral basket on May Day; take a guided bike tour of Lexington; sing along with colonial music at the colonial sing; learn about new artists during open studios, listen to stories by Paul Revere and Louisa May Alcott, dance in a spontaneous shim-sham shimmy; attend a choral concert, see a Tony-award winning musical, take a wild edible walk, be spooked on Friday the 13th, attend the LHS student film festival or an antique car show, enjoy beading to music, running scavenger hunt and much more! Take a special night tour on the Liberty Ride and Battle Green. End the month at Discovery Day, the community picnic, the decorated bicycle parade and the opening of the Farmer's Market. Many events are free. Sponsored by the Tourism Committee in partnership with local businesses and town organizations.
