The weekend of holiday festivities has become a beloved occasion as well as an important link to our nation’s history and heritage. For 20 years, hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life have traveled to the historic Plymouth Harbor and Waterfront to experience a bounty of authentic Americana. The celebration of Thanksgiving becomes history-brought-to-life as Pilgrims, Native Americans, Soldiers, Patriots, and Pioneers proudly climb out of the history books and onto the streets of Plymouth.

This year’s events, which kicks off our 2020 Celebration Series, will include special events each year leading up to the historic anniversary of Plymouth. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to join us now and become a part of the biggest event celebrating our history.

Note that roads will close to all traffic at 9:30am. Members of the society in period dress as well as uniformed members of the Col. Henry Knox Color Guard will assemble in the neighborhood surrounding Holmes Terrace. Free parking is readily available on the street in this area. Spectators will find plenty of fine vantage points on Main Street (Route 3A) — look specifically for the area near Cole’s Hill Burial Ground to be near the finish line.

At the conclusion of the parade, participants, members and their guests are invited to join our host the Plymouth Blue Water Chapter at the Pillory Pub at 72 Water Street for cold refreshments. Arrangements are being made to have tents and hot food (chili, soup, sandwiches and dessert) at Stevens Field for marcher’s and volunteers.

Volunteers from the Plymouth Blue Water Chapter will provide shuttle service back to the cars parked in the Holmes Terrace neighborhood.

From the Plymouth Chapter

Members in Class B Uniform and in period dress are welcome to march with us in the parade . If you would like to march, please email the Plymouth Chapter with a brief description of your outfit so we can send information on the muster.

After the gathering at the Pillory Pub, we invite you to join us at Stevens Field where there will be tables and tents with food and drink for our members and their families. For this, we need help to set up and tear down the area as well as to transport members back to their vehicles at Holmes Terrace 2.5 away. Please contact Dick Jarvis if you can volunteer.
