Celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in Toronto

Celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in Toronto, flickr:Jordan FischerCanadian Thanksgiving takes place on the second Saturday of every October. This year the date falls on the 14th. Differences between the Canadian and American versions of the holiday are nuanced with both celebrations centering around a family feast of turkey with all the trimmings. Essentially, Canadian Thanksgiving is just a lot earlier and further north – but just as delicious!

Planning to be Toronto during the first half of October? Here's a list of restaurants serving traditional Canadian Thanksgiving menus.

Barque Smokehouse
299 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M3
One of Canada's most talked about BBQ restaurants, Barque Smokehouse is a meat lover's paradise. Fans of seasonal produce, quality wine and artisan beers will be right at home here as well. Ask about Barque's whole and half bird hickory-smoked turkeys served up for Thanksgiving.
