San Francisco Thanksgiving Overview

On November 26, 1789, President George Washington proclaimed the first American thanksgiving celebration. The tradition has its roots in the 1620s, when the country’s early pilgrims recognized the Puritan holiday with a hearty feast, but G.W. was the first U.S. leader who recognized it as a national holiday.

Today, Thanksgiving has become the centerpiece of fall Americana. Millions of citizens gather with family and friends and load their bellies with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, and all sorts of savory treats while watching football and drinking beer.

Cities across America host a slew of Thanksgiving parties that complement social gatherings like gravy complements mashed potatoes. In 2018, Thanksgiving in San Francisco offers fun turkey bashes at pubs like Shotwell’s. Established in the 1890s, this Bay Area staple features an array of beers, wines, and sangrias

San Francisco also boasts a variety of Thanksgiving events that provide the perfect amount of holiday entertainment. A little bit south of the city, the hometown Stanford Cardinal take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in an annual gridiron battle that never disappoints.

Additionally, San Francisco is full of beautiful public spaces like Golden Gate Park, where Thanksgiving activities like pick-up football games, strolling in park, and taking in scenic views is the norm.

No matter which way you slice your pumpkin pie, it’s hard to beat Thanksgiving in San Francisco. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the fall season in the Bay Area after stuffing your pie hole with loads of turkey.
