Our 5th Annual 50-Mile Thanksgiving Celebration will be held this year on Saturday, Nov. 12, from  5 to 9 pm at the Kittery Lions Club, 17 State Road in Kittery ME.  This year will feature local turkeys, music and dancing!

Please bring a potluck dish that contains at least one ingredient sourced within 50 miles of your home. (Note: Some local food options are fall greens, onions, potatoes, squashes and pumpkins, turnips and rutabagas, apples and cider, dried beans, fish, eggs, cheese, and meats.)

To minimize waste and cleanup time, please bring your own “dining kit” (plate, bowl, drinkware, cutlery, and napkin) and beverage, as described in About Our Potlucks.

Suggested donation: $10 per adult; no charge for children accompanied by adults.

RSVPs are requested (but not required). To add your name to the guest list, please  send an email to Slow Food Seacoast with “RSVP for the 50-Mile Thanksgiving” in the subject line. (Although RSVPs are not required, if the number of attendees exceeds the room’s capacity, people on the guest list will have priority seating.)

Volunteers are needed for the setup, service, and  cleanup. To add your name to the volunteer list, please  send an email to Slow Food Seacoast with “I want to volunteer” in the subject line.

Take Note: The last Portsmouth Farmers’ Market will be on November 5th, so be sure to stock up on ingredients ahead of time!
