Trenton Spotlight

Patriots Week


In Trenton, the American Revolution isn't some abstract concept from the dusty past, it is a living breathing part of the city, which has shaped its streets and buildings, and how people live even today. Recognizing this, the Trenton Downtown Association commemorates Trenton's unique and pivotal role in the American Revolution with Patriot's Week, its comprehensive celebration of the life and times of Revolutionary War-era Trenton. Patriot's Week is held annually during the week between Christmas and New Year's, and attracts thousands of visitors to the city to enjoy art music, literature, battlefield re-enactments, and living history events. Nationally recognized, Patriots' Week 2006 received an Award of Recognition from the New Jersey Historical Commission. So don't just read about your nation's Revolutionary War history, visit Trenton during Patriot's Week and relive it. Click here to visit the Patriots week Facebook page.
