Tickets & merchandise on sale Now
The Thomasville History Center’s election night tradition began in 1993 and 30 years later, we’re still cooking!
First introduced to the History Center by Jasper Davis, the annual event has provided significant funds towards our operations and programs. It began as a fundraising dinner for renovations to the Smith Log House and Kitchen and has grown into a community tradition drawing crowds each Election Night.
For those new to pilau, we pronounce it as “per-loo.” However you pronounce it, it is a savory chicken and rice dish spiced with black pepper and served with crackers, sweet pickles, coleslaw, and dessert.
Eat-In & Music: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Enjoy live music from the Smith Homestead porch featuring the acoustic sounds of Blue Burden.
