In 2013, the Golden Tricorne Project was born as part of Lexington’s anniversary celebrations.  It was met with such success, that each year it grows.  There are more artists involved, more businesses involved, more sponsors involved, and more Lexington residents involved.

The Golden Tricorne Project is a unique, Lexington town-wide scavenger hunt that happens in the two weeks prior to Patriots’ Day.  In the months leading up to this event, local artists transform the standard black felt tricorne hat into a wearable golden artwork. These creations are then placed around town at local businesses to be found in the scavenger hunt for children and adults alike.  In 2014, trading cards were also created for store-owners to give out after their shop’s Golden Tricorne was found.  Winners are then invited to walk in the Patriot’s Day Parade.

For photographs of previous years’ events and hat designs, visit the Golden Tricornes Facebook page.

We would like to invite you to become involved as we continue to reach out to the community.  The project relies on volunteers to help organize and hide hats, artists, businesses,and sponsors.

To participate in any way, email the Golden Tricorne Committee at

Donations are also greatly accepted to help fund the base black tricorne hats, and trading cards.
