Come Celebrate with Us

Thanksgiving Day on Hilton Head Island need not be a lonely day for anyone! All are welcome to share turkey, dressing and all the trimmings at a free dinner held at Hudson's Seafood House on the Docks.

For those who might be alone or unable to prepare a meal, it's important to know there is a place for you to go to celebrate this holiday with others. The meal is prepared by Hudson's Seafood House on the Docks on Skull Creek, with volunteers from the community to help serve the food. There will be lots of good fellowship and entertainment for a festive atmosphere.


Obviously due to the restrictions and safety of all, this year Community Thanksgiving will look a little bit different.

That said, please check this website or our Facebook page often for details for this year's festivities. Know that it will be smaller than it has been, with fewer people who can attend, and fewer volunteers. We will also probably need to use some sort of reservation system for attendees.

We look forward to celebrating this year with you, and we will update this site as soon as we know the details.
