Eat Like a Pilgrim at Thanksgiving Point

Nov 01, 11 Eat Like a Pilgrim at Thanksgiving Point

Eat Like a PilgrimThe holiday season is rolling around, but remember that Thanksgiving comes before Christmas. So how do you celebrate? Typically Thanksgiving is that holiday where you eat WAY too much and have to sleep off that turkey afterward. However, there are actually quite a few Thanksgiving activities in Utah.

Every year at Thanksgiving Point they host what they call the Eat Like a Pilgrim Feast, which is a commemoration of the historic harvest feast in 1621. Your hosts will be re-enactors from the Colonial Heritage Foundation, and you will be eating on rustic, wooden benches placed around long, wooden tables. The entire show barn at Thanksgiving Point becomes transformed so entrants can play traditional Pilgrim and Wampanoag games, dance, and even learn a little about the history of this event.

So what is on the menu? Well, serving Eat Like a Pilgrimmodern Thanksgiving Day food wouldn’t really cut it for this historical celebration–everything will be quite accurate. Although there are a few recognizable items on the menu such as apple cider, corned pudding, roast pork, turkey, and mixed green salads, there are also a few unique items that may have actually been at that first Thanksgiving feast. These items include cheate bread with butter, stewed pumpkins, warm goat’s milk, and raw oysters. But of course dessert is a must–warm berry cobbler might be just as good as pie.

So come join us for the annual Eat Like a Pilgrim Feast for great dining in Utah, and enjoy time together as a family learning about the first Thanksgiving Day in America. Buy tickets at the Thanksgiving Point website.
