Eat Like a Pilgrim @ Thanksgiving Point



Thanksgiving Point in Lehi will host its annual "Eat Like a Pilgrim" feast and festivities on Nov. 19, 20 and 22 in the Thanksgiving Point Show Barn. --- Guests of all ages are invited to the unique, hands-on celebration that will take guests back in time to experience authentic food and reenactment of the 17th century. Historical figures will help transport guests into early America through authentic harvest fare, décor and ambience. Actors from the Colonial Heritage Foundation will portray influential figures from the era including Governor William Bradford, William Brewster and Edward Winslow.

At dinner, guests can expect a traditional pilgrim-like table setting with the option to use a spoon, knife or hands to eat. Each place setting will have a 3-foot square napkin to place over the shoulder as a hand wipe. Items on this year's menu include roasted turkey, roasted pork, corn pudding, stewed pumpkins and homemade bread, with mixed-berry cobbler for dessert. To add to the authenticity of the dining experience, warm goat's milk, duck and raw oysters will be available for tasting. Hmmm.... warm goat's milk???? 

To help capture the pilgrim mood, the Thanksgiving Point Show Barn will be filled with indoor displays and live farm animals, including a milk cow, goats and turkeys. Guests are invited to interact with the animals and participate in a variety of activities, crafts and period games.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and dinner begins at 6 p.m. Tickets bought in advance are $25 for adults, $15 for children ages 3-12 and free for children age 2 and under seated on laps. Tickets the day of the event are $30 for adults and $20 for children. For more information, click here
