At Stokely Event Center, we are passionate about providing a space in which you can celebrate special events however you see fit. While we are all for the traditional Thanksgiving feast, we know that not everyone gets as excited about turkey as we do!
Thanksgiving is about so much more than the meal – it’s an opportunity to come together with the people you love and celebrate the many things we have been given. Luckily, you don’t need a turkey to accomplish this! Here are some unique ways to celebrate Thanksgiving without a turkey.
While a Thanksgiving feast may be a tradition for many, it doesn’t have to include a hearty dinner. Why not host a brunch-style gathering that will satisfy all your guests?
Serve up some pancakes, omelets, French toast, and coffee for an early-rising feast that is perfect for the whole family.
With our flexible spaces, you can host everything from a cozy Thanksgiving brunch with close friends to a large gathering for your entire family.
Thanksgiving at the Movies
If you’re feeling a little tired of family and football, why not treat your loved ones to an alternative Thanksgiving tradition? Spend some time together in front of the big screen so you can catch up on all the latest flicks!
When you host an event at Stokely Event Center, you have access to our audio and visual equipment – perfect for hosting this activity!
Thanksgiving Around the World
Since Thanksgiving is about so much more than the meal, why not host a Thanksgiving celebration that brings your loved ones together around the table to learn about other cultures?
This is an excellent opportunity for all of you to catch up while sharing meaningful conversations over good food. Create a meal featuring special dishes from various cultures. Cater these dishes from local restaurants or plan a potluck-style meal!
Thanksgiving Game Night
If you’re looking for a more relaxed way to celebrate with family and friends, consider hosting a Thanksgiving game night!
From the traditional board games to trivia contests, everyone will have fun while enjoying your company. While there are no rules here – feel free to keep it casual or get competitive, depending on who you’re with.
Bring your own games or incorporate our many arcade games including pinball, shuffleboard, skeeball, and more! Up the ante by offering prizes for the winners. Plan to serve some of your favorite game night snacks or stick to a more traditional dinner once the festivities are winding down.
