Our Great Hagerstown Thanksgiving Feast is the longest running free community Thanksgiving Day meal in Hagerstown. It’s practically a Thanksgiving tradition that you might want to be a part of.

Our buffet is full of the most delicious food including roast turkey, mashed potatoes, our famous stuffing, sweet potatoes, succotash, sauerkraut, cranberry sauce, fruit, pumpkin pie and more!

And did we mention it’s all for free??!!! There’s no charge and no reservation needed. Our activities for kids start at 11am and then we kick everything off at 11:30am. Come alone or bring friends, family and anyone else with you on Thursday because the Trinity Center is one of the biggest dining rooms in Hagerstown and all are welcome! We promise there will be plenty of food and you’ll have plenty of good conversation.
