Nowhere can you find a more exciting, educational and enjoyable way to add to your holiday traditions than a beautiful fall day at Berkeley Plantation. The Virginia Thanksgiving Festival is a fun filled family day. The festival begins with a parade including horse-drawn carriages, fife and drum corps, festival entertainers and participants. First person re-enactors, musicians and magicians stroll the plantation grounds.

Families participate in Colonial period games, dancing, crafts, activities and a corn maze. Vendors showcase their food, arts, crafts and jewelry. The re-enactment of the landing, moderated by Bill Bevins, begins at 3:00 PM. Following the re-enactment, the Chickahominy Tribal Dancers invite everyone to join them in their traditional friendship dance. Brock’s BBQ will continue the tradition of offering Thanksgiving Dinner in a glass along with other food items. It is an exciting, educational and enjoyable day for the whole family!
