Submit Your Path Through History Event

We welcome your partnership as we work together to showcase New York's unparalleled history. Currently, we are accepting submissions for year-round Path Through History (PTH) events as well as Path Through History Weekend (PTHW) events.  All historic and heritage organizations and sites may submit a PTHW event for consideration and do not need to be an official PTH site to participate in the PTHW program. For information on becoming an official site, click here. New York State attractions and sites may contact the Path Through History team with general program inquires, or e-mail the Path Through History Weekends team with specific weekend event questions.  

Path Through History Weekends

New York State has designated annual Path Through History Weekends to promote the state’s rich and fascinating history. Historical and cultural attractions across the state hold hundreds of special events that are promoted by I Love NY and the NYS Division of Tourism. The 2024 Path Through History Weekends will take place June 15-16 and October 12-14 .

The 2024 weekend programs will allow for sites to host in-person live events, online virtual events, or a combination of both formats. Visit our FAQs for more info. 

Event registration deadlines:
Spring Weekend Deadline - June 10, 2024
Fall Weekend Deadline - October 7, 2024

All events must meet the following criteria:

  • The event should have a historical component beyond simply being featured at or by a historical site. 
  • Event submissions must include at least one high-quality image and a description of at least 250 characters.
  • Attendees should expect to have a safe, fun, interesting, and/or educational experience. Virtual offerings may include experiences such as Facebook-live events, podcasts, zoom classes, video tours, video concerts, video lectures, and online classes.
  • All in-person events must be held at sites/locations that are publicly accessible and legally operated according to all NYS and local tax, health, safety, zoning, and other codes, laws, and regulations.
  • Examples of events excluded from Path Through History events listings include retail sales events; dinners, galas, benefit sales (like tag and bake sales) and other events geared primarily toward fundraising, without a prominent educational/historical component; semester-long classes; trade shows; and individual events within an already listed event.
  • For the purposes of the Path Through History calendar, an event is defined as a unique offering lasting no more than 14 days total. For long term exhibits, consider adding this information to your attractions listing description. Please contact the Path Through History program managers for assistance if needed.

After clicking "Submit" your event will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the criteria and contains all necessary information. The NYS Division of Tourism reserves the right to deny any event deemed inappropriate or inapplicable.
