Thanksgiving is one of the biggest holidays in the United States. Is it really just about turkeys, apple pie and shopping? The Real Thanksgiving Dinner provides a more accurate history of how this holiday came to be and what really happened at the first Thanksgiving.

Come back in time to 1621 and enjoy an authentic meal and learn about how the Native American communities of the Northeast helped the Pilgrims survive the first harvest and winter. The menu consists of heritage free-range turkeys, yams, wild root vegetable soup and more. You will learn about how Native communities were affected by this new migration from Europe and enjoy an entertaining and educational performance by local Aztec dancers. This is one of the most popular events of the year!

Real Thanksgiving Dinner will take place Tuesday November 15, 2011. More information to come.
