Thanksgiving Weekend in Abbotsford

Tags: Abbotsford

We're on the cusp of a long weekend here in Abbotsford; have you planned ahead to make the most of it? Kelson Group has compiled a list of local events to ensure that you have a weekend to remember.

Friday, October 5th

  Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF), one of the largest festivals in North America, runs until October 12th.  Check out the festival program online  and purchase some tickets for a unique Friday night at the movies.  

Saturday, October 6th

  Stock up on cranberries for your Thanksgiving feast at the Fort Langley Cranberry Festival. Over 100 vendors participate in this event located in the historic village.   Stick around after the Cranberry Festival for a spooky event. It's the first weekend of Grave Tales, a 90-minute tour featuring the chilling stories of Fort Langley's past. Walk on a guided tour throughout the village, cemetery and the deserted Hudson Bay Company fort. The tour is limited to those aged 17 and older, tickets are $15 per person.   If you love live music, be sure to drop by the Envision Concert Series to see Groovedaddy at 8 p.m. Held at the Clayburn Gourmet Gallery, this smooth jazz concert will calm your nerves before hosting a Thanksgiving dinner.  

Sunday, October 7th

  Burn off some feasting calories with Sunday night dance lessons held at Suburban Swing here in Abbotsford. Drop-in lessons begin at 7:45, or more confident dancers can try out the Sunday Night Swing sessions at 8:30 p.m.  

Monday, October 8th

  Head to the Matsqui Recreation Centre and take the family for an afternoon swim at the Thanksgiving Splash.   If you don't feel like cooking, leave it up to the Full Barrel Café at Fort Langley. Join in for a Thanksgiving feast and traditional fare at the national historic site of Canada.  

Happy Thanksgiving!
