Celebrate America's biggest holiday with family fun & buffet

The Australian American Association (AAA) - Canberra Division is inviting you and your family to experience a traditional Thanksgiving Feast ... with an exciting Australian twist.

The Thanksgiving Feast will be held at Canberra Rex Hotel on Thursday 24th November from 6.00 pm and feature a delicious buffet with all the traditional favourites including turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potato, pumpkin pie…and more!

Why the Canberra Rex Hotel? In 1966, the 1st U.S President to visit Australia, President Lyndon B. Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson stayed there (their room is still referred to as the Presidential Suite).

The Rex rooftop bar also has a unique view of the Australian-American Memorial, an important symbol of Australian gratitude to American service personnel for their contribution to the defence of Australia during World War II.

The founding members of the AAA led the way in the proposal and fundraising for the Australian-American Monument which was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II on her first royal tour to Australia. Read more about AAA History here.

All are welcome to enjoy the Thanksgiving Feast from 6.00 pm. Get your family, friends and colleagues together and indulge in American-inspired dishes enhanced with Aussie ingredients while learning about America's biggest holiday (yes, it's bigger than Christmas!).

You also have the opportunity to find out about American traditions, share what fills you with gratitude and watch the kiddies create festive Thanksgiving crafts!

Don't miss the Thanksgiving Feast with the AAA and discover why many Americans get nostalgic at this time of year - wherever they are in the world!
