Trip to Philipsburg Manor – Pinkster Celebration
Save the Date – May 19, 2018

Pinkster was a holiday originally celebrated by the Dutch before coming to New Amsterdam in the early 1600s. During Pinkster the enslaved men and women of this plantation were also allowed to celebrate this holiday, and for centuries it was practiced by African Americans throughout New England.
Historic Hudson Valley invites visitors to experience this celebration and tour the grounds of the plantation on May 19, 2018. Our bus will leave East Elmhurst at 10am and the ticket price includes lunch. Early bird pricing has ended. Come travel with us and explore this beautifully preserved estate.
