Thanksgiving Events in California
California Festivals, Food and Thanksgiving Celebrations


For a turkey-free California Thanksgiving holiday, stay at Carmel Valley Ranch and watch turkeys instead of eating them.


Happy Thanksgiving! Are you looking for some California Thanksgiving ideas to launch your favorite holiday times?  From several turkey trots to delicious buffets such as the meal we tried last year at Queen Mary, make it fun on this holiday before the shopping storm.


California Festivals and Fairs in November include events with a culturally-rich and diverse mix of foods, festivities and fun.  From tamales to mushrooms, you'll be jumping for joy at the variety of great activities in the parades, plays, fairs, festivals and holiday celebrations shared in the month Californians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. Some of our favorite events include the Turkey Trot held at Doheny Beach in Dana Point, a no-turkey dinner at Carmel Valley Ranch, where turkeys sit outside the window and watch and the Queen Mary Thanksgiving Buffet, a feast.


At Disneyland, you can see a turkey that was spared the axe by the Whitehouse and was sent to Disneyland in Anaheim to live out its merry days. You can see it on display in Bear Country.


Thousands of festivals in November launch the Christmas holiday. Tree lightings, parades, Santa visits, town square open houses and countless wine country chefs dinners are a few of the events, fairs, festivals and celebrations that launch California into the winter season where it can be cold and snowy in the mountains, or warm and sunny at the beaches and deserts.
