The Real First Thanksgiving: Facts & Snacks

November 12, 4:30-5:30 PM | Register

What do you know about the actual first "Thanksgiving"? There was no pumpkin pie and no cranberry sauce. So what did Edward Winslow, Massasoit, and the other Pilgrims and Wampanoags eat? Regina Porter, a local history expert from the Winslow House will share little-known facts about the holiday. After, we will sample some of the actual foods they ate. Recipes kindly provided by the Plimoth Plantation.
