This event is but one way the Capital Area YMCA steps up to enrich and encourage our community. The YMCA’s Trenton branch opened up in 1856, and they’ve been serving the people of Trenton ever since. Although some things may have changed over the years, what remains consistent is a commitment to the Mercer County region. As an organization, the Y has a proud history in our city – they were even the hosts of the very first professional basketball game! And that legacy is still alive and well today as they continue to support the Capital City.

The Y offers classes, childcare options, events, and more throughout the year. A full event calendar can be found here: YMCA – Calendar. The YMCA is particularly concerned with the development and progress of our city’s youth. As an organization, they seek to offer a safe and nurturing environment in which all members of the community can learn, grow, and thrive. As they continue to serve Trenton and the surrounding communities, the impact of their efforts to foster and promote healthy living and social responsibility are felt every day.
