Celebrate the holidays at Henricus Historical Park with these fun events:

  • "Ye Corne Beer and Rosted Deer": Thanksgiving Food and Drink Traditions of the Virginia Colonists - Saturday, Nov. 26, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.  This event will demonstrate the old and new traditions of how English people mixed giving thanks for a successful harvest with what bounty Virginia offered the people arriving here. Looking at how the English were influenced by other cultures and places – Asia, Africa, and the Americas – in their foods and feasts.
  • Twelfth Night: Boar's Head Feast - Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16 and 17, 6-8 p.m. Tis’ the Season to step back in time! Follow the merry Lord of Misrule to England in the 1590s and enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Christmas as we knew it then: a multi-course feast including roasted meats, pies, ale, cider and more, served at table in our spacious, candle-lit Guest House with a blazing Yule log fire. Dine to the sounds of period musicians, with wassailing a-plenty, and many a toast to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I.
