Thanksgiving in the NEK

By: Tabitha Armstrong | 11.17.20

Thanksgiving 2020, NEK Style


IMPORTANT: Due to Covid 19, many restaurants that often offer in-house dining for the Holiday will be providing to-go meals. Please contact restaurants early and reserve your meal. For those that are still offering in-house service, reservations are required.


Thanksgiving may look different this year, but the food spread doesn’t have to!

We know that for many people, this year’s Thanksgiving may not be filled with the faces of loved ones, friends, and neighbors. As we all strive to keep our celebrations consisting of immediate family, that doesn’t mean we have to skimp on the food. In fact, traditional foods have a way of transending time and place, of helping to heal, of getting us through.

So this year, if you don’t feel much like celebrating or don’t want to cook a large dinner for just a few people, but still want that delicious Thanksgiving meal, then reach out and support local restaurants and bakeries for one of these fantastic holiday experiences!

Events are sorted by county, then town, alphabetically.
