  • The Center Club 650 Center Drive Costa Mesa, CA 92626 USA (map)

Join your fellow Canadians for our Fourth Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner

Did you know?

Americans did not invent Thanksgiving. It began in Canada. Frobisher’s celebration in 1578 was 43 years before the pilgrims gave thanks in 1621 for the bounty that ended a year of hardships and death. Abraham Lincoln established the date for the US as the last Thursday in November. In 1941, US Congress set the National Holiday as the fourth Thursday in November.
