Thanksgiving Weekend

When: Nov. 25-27, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2016

After a modern-day feast of turkey, family and football, folks can turn back the clock and take in the sights, smells and sounds of a traditional 19th-century Thanksgiving celebration. Woodstock’s Billings Farm & Museum transports attendees to the time before store-bought pies and television marathons with three days of authentic activities for all ages. Visitors to the site’s 1890 farmhouse observe costumed interpreters as they prepare customary fare in the kitchen, then make their way to the Victorian parlor for a lesson on the evolution of the holiday. Hands-on projects, spiced cider and horse-drawn wagon rides top off this Thanksgiving blast from the past.

Price: Regular admission, $4-14; free for members and kids 2 and under.
