10 am – 5 pm     

Come join the English and Powhatan historical interpreters at Henricus for the autumn harvest feasts and fun common to all people in 17th-century Virginia. Visitors will have a chance to be immersed in the cooking, games, and songs that were common to the homes in 1611-1622 Virginia. This event will further interpret the history of the first “Thanksgiving” in English America – the one which happened in 1619 in Virginia! Join us for smells, sounds, and frolic of the 17th century past.

More details to come!

Cost:  $9/adult, $7/children ages 3-12; Henricus Patrons: free
