Thanksgiving Potluck Feast
Our biggest community event of the year, the Annual Thanksgiving Potluck Feast is where old friends and new neighbors meet and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. Agassiz Baldwin Community supplies the turkey (cooked by volunteers), cranberry sauce, and drinks, while our guests bring salads, sides, and desserts inspired by their own family traditions. Hosted in the Maria L. Baldwin School cafeteria, this neighborhood tradition held on the Tuesday before the Thanksgiving holiday has continued for nearly forty years!

Every year, we ask ten to twelve volunteers to cook turkeys purchased and delivered directly to their homes by ABC staff. Volunteers then bring cooked turkeys to the dinner Tuesday night between 5:30-6:00 pm. Can’t cook a whole turkey? We love to share side dishes from each other’s family traditions. Please bring a side dish large enough for your family plus a few more.
Activities for Kids
Activities for children are available in the Maria L. Baldwin School gym and in the afterschool community room, but parents are ultimately responsible for their children.
