Friendship, Trade, and Feast ft. History by the Pint

Saturday, November 28, 2020

From 1607-1622, the English and Powhatan people had moments of what the English called “Thanksgiving” characterized by trade, gift giving, and the sharing of food and drink. During this program, several colonial English and Powhatan Indian recipes will be faithfully recreated by Henricus interpreters and volunteers. Visitors will observe how food was prepared and examine typical items that would have been exchanged between the two cultures. If you enjoy the smell of wood fires, iron-pot cooking over hot coals, and clay oven bread baking, come to Henricus’ annual autumn event!

In addition, beer will be available for purchase from Dancing Kilt Brewery as part of the History by the Pint series starting at noon.

As an outdoor, living-history museum, Henricus is well-positioned to provide a safe and enjoyable holiday outing with the family. For a list of Henricus’ COVID-19 guidelines and calendar of events, visit
