Signature Events

As we approach the 250th anniversary of America’s independence, Arlington, formerly known as Menotomy, will commemorate its revolutionary past by hosting a series of signature events. These events have been selected by the Arlington250 Committee either because they fit the theme of “Untold Stories” or because they are appropriately celebratory in nature.

The Arlington 250 Committee is the organizing body for the Town of Arlington, MA’s commemoration of the semiquincentennial — the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution. It includes representatives from Arlington’s Select Board, School Committee, Tourism and Economic Development (A-TED) committee, Historical Society, Chamber of Commerce, and Commission for Arts and Culture (Arts Arlington); Town Meeting; the Battle Road Scenic Byway Committee; the Menotomy Minutemen; and volunteers from the community at large. Revolution 250 is a non-profit organization that is capturing the history of the revolution in Massachusetts; the MA Office of Travel & Tourism has created MA 250, a statewide marketing campaign commemorating the past and celebrating the future of our Commonwealth.
