The Tri-State is growing as more and more people are discovering that it is a great place to call home…which is awesome!
But if you’re not from here — and you have nowhere to call “home” for Thanksgiving…don’t worry, there’s a lot of us, and we have lots of events to choose from — so we don’t feel alone this holiday season.
From Drinksgiving to community meals and performers on parade…here’s where you can join your Evansville “family” to make new Thanksgiving traditions.
The 27th is a big day for parties…it’s a German town…and we celebrate with “Drinksgiving” on the day before Thanksgiving!
You can head to Haynie’s Corner Brewing Company for what they’re calling “a beer-fueled bandwagon”.
Introduce your awkward family to the newest Haynie’s Corner hot-spot while they’re in town for the holidays, show your friends the best brewery on Haynie’s Corner, or find a family at the bar.
At Lyle’s Pizza and Sportszone, Junkyard Stereo will be rockin’ it out from 7pm-11pm.

Pizza Pub is hosting a free meal, until supplies run out, on Thanksgiving day — and the YMCA wants to make sure you start the day of feasting by earning those carbs with their Turkey Day 5K!
