Boston Marathon & Patriots' Day 2020

*Please note that the Boston Marathon has been postponed until September 14, 2020

Patriots' Day is a one-of-a-kind state holiday celebrated in Massachusetts and Maine every April. In Boston, this special day marks the return of a number of beloved and iconic traditions, the most famous being the Boston Marathon. Arguably the biggest marathon race in the world in terms of prestige, history, and viewership, this annual contest draws the best long-distance runners from around the world, as well as a crowd that repeatedly tops half a million people. In addition to the big race, every year there’s a special Patriots' Day Red Sox game in the late morning at Fenway Park. This year, the Sox will take on the Cleveland Indians.
