Patriot Week, established in 2016, is designed to inspire and educate the community about Honor, Service, Sacrifice, Character and Duty to reinforce the true meaning of Memorial Day. The timing of Patriot Week is important as it commences on Armed Forces Day and concludes on Memorial Day. All events and activities offered during Patriot Week, to honor our Fallen, are created to educate citizens about the difference between Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
Our Annual Patriot Week signature events include the following:
- Gala Dinner at Encore Boston Harbor which is our anchor event
- Flags for the Fallen at the Memorial in the Seaport
- InnoVets Pitch Competition at the new Emond Center for Engagement (ECE)
- Memorial Rededication Ceremony at the Memorial in the Seaport
- Gold Star Family and Veteran Cookout at the Memorial in the Seaport
