Plymouth 400
Commemoration

The walk, originally scheduled for August of 2020, will be moved to May, 2021. Final date and details to come.

The Wampanoag Ancestors Walk will be led by the Wampanoag tribes of Massachusetts. Placards will be carried with the names of the original 69 villages of the Wampanoag Nation. Participants will pay homage to Massasoit and King Phillip and will stop at designated sites to bless the spots where Wampanoag ancestors walked. The walk will conclude with a drum ceremony and homage to Native souls, followed by a reception.

The Pilgrim Progress was instituted by the Town of Plymouth in 1921 in honor of its Pilgrim founders. The march takes place the first four Fridays in August and also is an integral part of the Town’s celebration of Thanksgiving Day.

Each marcher represents one of the 51 survivors of the first harsh winter of 1620-21.

The line of march proceeds past Plymouth Rock and up the First Street (Leyden Street today) to the top of Burial Hill where a short Pilgrim worship service is observed on the site of the original fort/meetinghouse. The passages read by Elder Brewster are usually from Governor Bradford’s “History” or other Pilgrim source.

This gathering will create an inspirational atmosphere to stimulate gratitude and giving in our families and community while honoring the significance of Plymouth’s founding in 1620.

The program will include spoken thoughts on the differences and similarities between Pilgrims and Puritans; Native American culture at our founding; and our part in the expansion of our founding and colonizing.

Presented by Mayflower 400 UK.  On 16 September 1620, the Mayflower left its final call in Plymouth before heading across the Atlantic to establish a new community in America.

Four hundred years on the moment will be marked with a poignant four-nations civic ceremony that will see a 1,000-person choir perform a brand new piece of bespoke music that tells the story of the Mayflower in an entirely new way, along with representatives from the UK, US, Netherlands, and Wampanoag.

The Mayflower Ceremony will be an inspiring event and takes place on 16 September 2020 – the anniversary date of the ship’s departure from the UK to the US.

Part of the Mayflower Week festivities, there will be schools and mass participation elements, making sure that Plymouth’s residents are at the heart of this special day. Other events include daily fly-bys and The Royal Marines Rehabilitation Triathlon.
