Thanksgiving Dining & Special Events

Turkey with fireplace

Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together. And...by the goodness of God we are so far from want that we often wish you partakers of our plenty. 

 - Edward Winslow, 1621

Nothing compares with the rich tradition of gathering together at harvest time and celebrating the abundant joys of the season. Plimoth Plantation is a great place to share that special meal with your family and friends - and with people from around the country and the world. Join us for a wonderfully memorable holiday dining experience.

 

America's Thanksgiving Dinner

America's Thanksgiving Dinner features the classic roast turkey with all the traditional New England trimmings. While you enjoy the company of family and friends, Pilgrim role players and Native interpreters will be on hand to greet you and you'll learn about the 1621 feast that continues to inspire our modern celebration of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving dinner at Plimoth makes the holiday's history come alive for you.

1627 Harvest Dinner with the Pilgrims

Join us in the year 1627 for an evening of entertainment and hospitality with the residents of the 17th-Century English Village.  Discover the table manners and recipes that traveled across the Atlantic with the Pilgrims, and find out about the harvest celebration of 1621. During dinner, you will be entertained with psalms and songs and perhaps you will be convinced to join in singing a round or two.
