Yorktown Day

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Join in the festivities to commemorate the Siege at Yorktown in 1781—and the Revolutionary victory that paved the way for America and freedom. The day begins with a wreath-laying ceremony followed by a patriotic parade down Main Street.

Enjoy a performance by the Fifes and Drums and be sure to visit all of the town’s historic sites such as the Nelson House, Yorktown Custom House, York County Historical Museum, Watermen's Museum, and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. On the Battlefield Tour Roads, visit siege lines, the redoubts, and Surrender Field!

Due to the closure of numerous streets in town for the Yorktown Day festivities, the Trolley will run from the Battlefield Visitor Center to American Revolution Museum at Yorktown from 10 a.m. to roughly 1 p.m. on a modified route. It will resume its regular stops once the parade has ended and traffic has cleared out of town, with service running until 5 p.m.
