Brainerd Thanksgiving Buffets & Dinner Meals

Thursday, November 23, 2023

Spend this Thanksgiving in the heart of the lakes country and enjoy a delicious family meal at a local resort or restaurant. Many of the Brainerd dining options offer special holiday menus and buffets for Thanksgiving. Feast on all your favorites like turkey & mashed potatoes, ham, stuffing, and don't forget pie! Just like being at home except the dishes are taken care of!

Brainerd Turkey Run

November 23 @ 9:00am - 10:30pm

Each year the Aadzuhman Shrine Club hosts the Brainerd Turkey Run to raise money for Shriners Children’s Twin Cities and of course to have a little fun along the way. You never know what kind of temperatures Mother Nature is going to bring you during Thanksgiving. It can be a nice sunny day, or it could be a blizzard outside. Either way, we are up for the challenge. If you would like to burn off some calories before Thanksgiving and also help raise some money for a good cause, we would love for you to join us.
