Thanksgiving Family Events in Buena Park


Oh, good ole’ Thanksgiving. Isn’t it crazy how one simple word (even if it is a compound) can bring to mind vivid images of colorful leaves, gigantic meals, and an unmistakable feeling of warmth and belonging? Thanksgiving, and the whole holiday season, is perhaps the greatest time of the year.


Sure, it’s hard to let go of the long days and care-free attitude that is associated with the summer months, but those days will be back before too long. For now, we are perfectly happy sipping our pumpkin spiced lattes, watching the leaves change colors and catching up on some much-needed family time.

If you and your family are looking for some super fun and easy activities to add to your list of holiday activities, then we here at Simpson Buick GMC, your local Buena Park GMC dealer, have just the list for you. Read on to discover great activities that will help you get the most out of your family time this Thanksgiving.


Sugar Plum Arts and Crafts Festival

The Sugar Plum Arts and Crafts Festival showcases some of the most unique and creative fall and winter decorations in the area. Stop by the Buena Park Downtown mall between November 30 and December 4, or the OC Fair and Event Center between November 10 and 12 and explore a variety of gifts including everything from jewelry to antiques, to delicious seasonal treats, to festive clothing. The arts and crafts festival has something for everyone so bring the whole family out!

Willowbrook Apple Farm

Apple picking is a staple of the autumn season and the perfect Thanksgiving activity for bringing the family together outside of the main event. Check out the mini horses, press fresh apple cider from the apples that you and your loved ones pick from Willowbrook’s 100-year-old trees, and take stunning family photos on the farm’s tractors!

Walk for Hope

Thanksgiving is a time dedicated to appreciating all of the good things in your life like family, friends, your freedom, your home and perhaps most importantly, your health. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, why not take the holiday season as an opportunity to give back to those who may not be as lucky as you?


The annual Walk for Hope comes to Los Angeles on Sunday, November 6th and benefits women’s cancer research. This inspiring 5k is a ton of fun for the entire family, and the proceeds go to a great cause. What better way to show your thanks for all of the privileges in your life than to give some back?
