The Community Thanksgiving Feast, held on the grounds of the Beaufort Historic Site, is a unique old-fashioned gathering of friends, neighbors, and visitors who promote a sense of community while sharing an amazing meal. Over the past 20 years the Thanksgiving Feast has evolved into more than a BHA event, but a community tradition. Each year families have traveled from both across the state and across the street to sit together and share a meal. This event kicks off the holiday season for many and creates opportunities to connect with new friends while catching up with others.
The Thanksgiving Feast will be held on Sunday, November 19th from 11:30 am -1:00 pm on the grounds of the Beaufort Historic Site, 130 Turner Street. Prepared and donated by some of Beaufort’s finest restaurants and bakeries, the feast is a delicious traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. This year participating businesses and organizations include Accidental Bakery, Aqua, Blue Moon Bistro, The Cedars Inn, City Kitchen, Clawson’s 1905 Restaurant, Cru Wine Bar and Coffee Shop, Dank Burrito, The Dock House Restaurant, Donna’s Deli at the Pig, Finz Grill, Front Street Grill at Stillwater, The General Store, McDonald’s, National Charity League, Ribeye’s Steakhouse, Roland’s Barbeque, Royal James Café, Scarborough Fare Catering, Spouter Inn, Turner Street Market. These wonderful restaurants, businesses and volunteers generously take time out of their hectic schedules to participate in this holiday event. Served from the Victorian-style Josiah Bell House, dinner will consist of turkey with dressing and gravy, ham, chili, clam chowder, collards, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, succotash, corn bread, cranberry sauce, ice cream, assorted pies, iced tea and coffee. These meals may be packed to take home or eaten on the grounds of the Historic Site under a tent – heated, if necessary. The event is held rain or shine.
