7th Annual Canadian Thanksgiving

Save the date for our 7th annual Canadian Thanksgiving in Orange County. Check back often, as more details will be added.

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 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!
