For over 20 years the Community Thanksgiving Feast has brought together friends, neighbors, and visitors. Families have traveled from near and far to enjoy the special Beaufort community spirit. To many, this event kicks off the holiday season and allows them the perfect chance to connect with new friends while catching up with old ones.
This year’s feast will take place on November 24 from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. on the Beaufort Historic Site grounds, 130 Turner Street. For $25 per person one can get a traditional Thanksgiving meal that is prepared and donated by our Beaufort restaurants as well as Scarborough Fare Catering; a family-oriented catering company with ties to Beaufort.
Scarborough Faire Catering is owned by Allison Thomas and her brother, Justin Wilkes. They have a home in Beaufort, and each year they bring their whole family to help with the feast. Their passion for food and southern hospitality make them the perfect fit for the Community Thanksgiving Feast.
The National Charity League, a mother and daughter organization will also be working the feast by welcoming guests, serving food, and preparing their homemade apple pies.
The feast will feature the traditional Thanksgiving turkey with dressing and gravy, as well as delicious ham and all the side dishes such as collard greens, sweet and mashed potatoes, soups and chowders, ice cream, assorted pies, and more.
