6th Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Celebration

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

Join your fellow Canadians for the
Sixth Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner

Ticket sales end on October 5th at 11:30pm

Canadian Thanksgiving traditionally brings Canadians together to celebrate a bountiful harvest and other blessings of the past year. That, and being held the first weekend of October, sets this tradition apart from the US celebration. However, similar to the US tradition, this is a family celebration, so bring your whole family to celebrate with us!

The friends, family, and of course the food served at the past events has become legendary, and this year’s event is set to be another memorable experience! We have had a few different chefs over the years, who have all done an incredible job for us. This year we are returning to the Center Club, who's Canadian born Executive Chef, Lewis Butler, will create another special Canadian-inspired Thanksgiving dinner, that will make you come back for more!

Canada's first celebration of Thanksgiving was in Frobisher in 1578, 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.
