8th Annual Canadian Thanksgiving

  • Center Club 650 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa USA (map)

Canadian Thanksgiving in Orange County

Ticket sales end October 4th at 11:59 PM

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 have 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 has created another special Canadian-inspired Thanksgiving dinner, that will make you come back for more!
