Our Favorite Thanksgiving Events in Salt Lake

These are some of the local Thanksgiving events that we enjoy. Leave a comment and let us know what your favorites are!

Feast with the Beast at Hogle Zoo

On Thanksgiving morning, bundle up the kids and spend a few hours at the Hogle Zoo! Feast with the Beast is a great way to free up kitchen space for whoever’s doing the cooking. Both kids and adults will love watching animals play with giant pumpkins and smash turkey-shaped pinatas. This event lasts from 9 a.m. until noon on Thanksgiving day.

Eat Like a Pilgrim at Thanksgiving Point

Thanksgiving Point is one of the few places in the country that puts on a historical event like this. The menu is delicious, featuring items like roast pork, turkey, stewed pumpkins, and mixed berry cobbler! Educators from the Alpine School District act out the roles of figures such as Governor William Bradford and Squanto from the original Thanksgiving feast. This event is coming up soon, on the 19th and 21st, so get your tickets and head down to Thanksgiving Point!

Utah Food Bank: Utah Human Race

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to give back to the community. Show your gratitude by running to support the Utah Food Bank! The Utah Human Race is an enormous 5K/10K race, and all proceeds help to feed the 1 in 7 Utahns that go hungry every day. For registration information, visit the food bank’s website.

Utah Personal Injury Law Firm

We at Christensen & Hymas are so thankful to live and work in the Salt Lake area. We take seriously the opportunity to serve our community and defend the rights of injured Utahns. If you are injured in an accident, we want to help you.

That being said, we hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
