Thanksgiving is the time to be together and serves as a great reminder to have gratitude for the blessings all around us. For some of us that means gathering together in the kitchen, on the couch watching football, attending a parade or festive event, or sitting around the table playing games with friends and family.

Our 2022 Thanksgiving Guide will help you find and enjoy all the festivities happening in Philly and get you into the holiday spirit. Happy Thanksgiving!
