About the Event

Families in Houston and beyond are cordially invited to join Kids' Committee President Caitlyn Ostfeld virtually for the Museum's third-annual Presidential Turkey Pardon!

Did you know that the tradition of "pardoning" the turkey at the White House, was actually started by a kid!? President Abraham Lincoln granted clemency to the main course of his family's Christmas Dinner in 1863 after his son, Tad, interceded on behalf of the turkey's life.

Tune in for the odd tradition of "pardoning" the turkey as we go live from the Museum with fowl, fun, fitness and food. 

Good eating, Ms. President. But let's keep this one trotting!
