Explore the History of Holiday Traditions Live from Tryon Palace

Experience the traditions of holidays past with us Nov. 19 during a live webcast from Tryon Palace in New Bern.

The webcast, streamed live from His Royal Governor's Cooking Office, will explore the history of the holidays with an 18th-century cooking demonstration, a hands-on historic craft you can make at your location and an interactive discussion exploring colonial holiday traditions.

After Tryon Palace education staff explain how cooks used the kitchen's massive fireplace to prepare for the season and guide participants through a traditional holiday craft, teachers and students can send questions that will be answered in real time. Though this program is geared toward school children, DCR employees are encouraged to participate.

The webcast will be held Wednesday, November 19, from 10-10:45 a.m. Register online at http://www.ncdcr.gov/DCRTV.

A federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the Connecting to Collections Initiative makes this entire series possible.
