Explore Centuries-Old Cooking Techniques at Foods & Feasts
This Thanksgiving holiday, explore centuries-old cooking techniques of 17th- and 18th-century Virginia during “Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia,” a two-day event on Friday, November 26 and Saturday, November 27 at Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
At Jamestown Settlement, discover how food was gathered, preserved and prepared on land and at sea by Virginia’s English colonists and Powhatan Indians. Enjoy cooking demonstrations throughout the day in re-creations of a Paspahegh town and colonial fort and along the ships’ pier.
At the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, learn how Continental Army soldiers earned their rations and witness the bounty of produce and proteins fresh from the Revolution-era farm transformed into stews, pies and breads.
Free admission for residents of York County, James City County and the City of Williamsburg, including William & Mary students, with proof of residency.
A combination ticket – available online only – is $28.90 for adults and
$14.45 for ages 6 through 12, offering seven days of unlimited admission to both Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Children ages 5 and under receive free admission to both museums. Annual passes and single site visits also are available. Parking is free at both locations.
