The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution across the state by celebrating Massachusetts’ role in the birthplace of our nation. As the Commonwealth marks the 250th anniversary of the independence of the United States of America, MOTT will work with municipalities, historical societies, businesses, and nonprofit organizations to create and highlight memorable experiences for domestic and international visitors. We will engage with the nation’s history, the past 250 years, and future innovation from Massachusetts.

“Massachusetts is home to many firsts, serving as the birthplace of our nation and heart of the American Revolution. We also created the first state constitution in 1780, hosted the National Women’s Rights Convention in 1850, and were the first state to legalize same-sex marriage,” said MOTT Executive Director, Kate Fox. “Our role in the American Revolution is critical to our nation’s history, and we look forward to putting our state on full display over the next three years to show domestic and international visitors the significant impact Massachusetts has had on this country and how we will carry a revolutionary spirit into the decades to come.”

MOTT will connect the past to the future through themes of revolution and independence, highlighting a shared commitment to a common cause of an inclusive democratic society and inspiring an innovative future in a state known for firsts. MOTT will commemorate the American Revolution across the Commonwealth through hundreds of events, including:
  • Paul Revere’s ride reenactment in Lexington
  • Lafayette’s bicentennial visit in Sturbridge
  • Revolutionary grave dedication in Ware
  • Evacuation Day celebration in South Boston
