Thanksgiving At Old Sturbridge Village

Turkey Day ThanksGiving Shopping

Cape Cod Thanksgiving Weekend 

If you are looking for something fun and unique to do during the long Thanksgiving weekend, then you may want to bring the family to Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.


A Window Back In Time

Like many people who choose to celebrate Thanksgiving at home – the ritual of preparing a feast for a big gathering also holds true at Old Sturbridge Village.


On Thanksgiving Day, the Village re-creates for modern-day visitors the traditions of the holiday as it was celebrated in the early 19th century!


Holiday Highlights

Highlights on Thanksgiving Day include hearth cooking  in preparation for a mid-day meal, when a farm family gathers at the table to feast.


See what was on the menu for an early New England Thanksgiving dinner and learn about table manners of the period, and other customs —  like a roll tucked inside the napkin or turnip sauce!


Give Thanks On A Massachusetts Sightseeing Adventure

You can also attend a re-created Thanksgiving Day service in the Center Meetinghouse and learn about why “giving thanks” on Thanksgiving Day was so important to early New Englanders, and why this holiday was held in higher esteem than many others, even Christmas or Easter.


Finally, after your belly is full,  you can cheer on the Village menfolk as they engage in an after-dinner shooting match with blackpowder muskets and a paper target.


Book A November Vacation!

A day trip to Old Sturbridge Village is the perfect compliment to a November vacation at Bayside Resort Hotel on Cape Cod.


It is also a window back in time – a chance to explore what Thanksgiving was truly like for New Englanders centuries ago. So get out and enjoy all that our historic state has to offer this Thanksgiving, then kick back and relax during the long holiday weekend at one of Cape Cod’s best hotels – Bayside Resort Hotel.
