November Observances

November features several important commemorations.

  • Thanksgiving & Commemoration of the 400th Anniversary (1620-2020) of the Pilgrims' Arrival on the Shores of Historic Patuxet: Plimoth Patuxet, formerly known as Plimoth Plantation, tells the stories of the Wampanoag people and the English colonists who created a new society – in collaboration and in conflict – in the 1600s. (Many of the events and media planned for 2020 were moved to 2021 due to the pandemic.)
