Give thanks in style at the Fairmont Empress. They’ll be serving a four-course, Thanksgiving dinner with roasted turkey as the centerpiece that blends the traditional with the modern. The dinner service will be available on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Q at the Empress.



Tucked in a forest grove on the shores of Tod Inlet, the Brentwood Bay Resort & Spa will make you feel miles away from it all, even though it’s just a 25-minute drive from downtown Victoria and three kilometers from The Butchart Gardens. The dining room faces east over the water, so you’ll be treated to a spectacular view while you eat. This Thanksgiving enjoy a three-course family style dinner with all the fixings (kids can order a smaller version of this for a reduced price). The Thanksgiving set menu will be available on October 13 and 14.

If you’re planning on spending your Thanksgiving weekend in Tofino, the Long Beach Lodge Resort is offering a festive Thanksgiving dinner in their beautiful Great Room. The menu features fresh harvest flavours like roasted squash salad, a pumpkin crème roulade, and of course turkey with all the fixings. 



Just because you might be away from home this Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a home-cooked meal. If you’re staying somewhere like the Parkside Hotel & Spa, The Oswego Hotel, or the Cottage at Hotel Zed, you’ll have access to a kitchenette where you can whip up some holiday favourites from scratch. Stop by the Victoria Public Market at the Hudson where you’ll find homemade pies, fresh produce, and so much more!
