Get ready for Pinkster, an African American festival celebrated in Dutch New York and rooted in the Christian feast of Pentecost. Watch historical interpreters prepare a meal for Pinkster over an open fire and then join us in finding out what items and foods would have been present at the festival.
This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
New-York Historical is now open to visitors—learn more. The DiMenna Children's History Museum remains temporarily closed. Your support is vital for our ability to continue serving the public. Please consider making a contribution to help fund all facets of our mission. Donate here >
