Thanksgiving in Vegas in 2022

Last Updated on November 10, 2022

Thanksgiving is almost here, and that means it’s time to start making plans for Thanksgiving in Vegas! From the perfect Thanksgiving feast and a great place to watch the Thanksgiving Day games to the holiday events and great deals on Black Friday shopping, Las Vegas is an exciting and fun place to be on Turkey Day!

Thanksgiving Dinner in Vegas

One of the highlights of spending Thanksgiving in Las Vegas is all the open restaurants for a delicious holiday feast. Of course, there are restaurants that offer a traditional turkey dinner, but this is Las Vegas, so you can expect that many are going to go over the top with their Thanksgiving menu.

Not every restaurant is open on Thanksgiving in Las Vegas, but we’ve done some yummy research on the restaurants that are open and the incredible special menus they offer. These are a few favorites but check the chart below for a complete list.

Bazaar Meat by Jose Andreas

For an elegant Thanksgiving dinner in Las Vegas, Bazaar Meat by celebrity chef Jose Andreas offers an incredible fine dining menu. The main course is a choice between Sous Vide Niman Ranch Turkey with traditional gravy or Josper Roasted Monkfish.

Accompaniments include Croquetas de Pavo, which are these wonderful turkey bechamel fritters, Endive Caesar Salad, green beans in a casserole with wild mushrooms, spiced cranberries, and of course — the stuffing! Dessert is also on the menu, and the atmosphere is perfect for lingering over a sweet treat or after-dinner drink.

Joe’s Seafood

Another favorite restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner in Las Vegas is Joe’s Seafood, located at the Forum Shops of Caesars Palace. This menu is just what you’re looking for if it’s a traditional Thanksgiving dinner meal you’re after.

The Thanksgiving menu features favorites like sliced turkey with pan gravy, classic stuffing, citrus cranberry relish, and butternut squash topped with toasted marshmallows. Dessert is a chiffon pumpkin pie.

If a turkey dinner isn’t your thing, they will also serve its regular menu on Thanksgiving Day.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant

For a more romantic meal on Thanksgiving Day, the Eiffel Tower is a wonderful choice. You can enjoy wonderful views of the Las Vegas Strip and an elegant, three-course Thanksgiving meal created by Chef J Joho.

Start with a creamy butternut squash soup or red wine-poached pears, then move on to the herb-roasted turkey (other options are available), with sides that include potato gratin, Brussel sprouts, chestnut dressing, and cranberry compote. Share a dessert of traditional pumpkin or pecan pie and enjoy the Las Vegas skyline on Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving Takeout

Yardbird at Venetain

Thanksgiving takeout is a great option if you’d prefer to enjoy Thanksgiving festivities at home rather than wait for a table at Las Vegas restaurants. Many restaurants in Las Vegas that are open on Thanksgiving will also offer takeout.

The Yardbird at the Venetian Resort is offering a To-Go option for celebrating Thanksgiving at home. This is a classic meal, with the roast turkey, mashed potato purée, cranberry relish, and just a lot of really good food. They’ll also offer a small a la carte menu.

Order early to make sure you get all of the delicious options.

Las Vegas Weather on Thanksgiving

One of the best reasons to spend Thanksgiving in Las Vegas is the weather. By the time November rolls around, the scorching temperatures have subsided, and the weather is just overall very pleasant.

The average high temp in Las Vegas for November tends to hover around 70 degrees, but since Thanksgiving weekend is toward the end of the month, expect the high temperature to be in the low to mid-60s, with lows hovering around the 40s.

You might not need a winter jacket, but a light jacket or warm sweater would be a perfect choice.

Here’s the weather forecast for Thursday, November 24, 2022.

Things To Do in Las Vegas on Thanksgiving

Best Places to Watch the Games

Every sports lover knows Thanksgiving weekend is prime time for sports action. There are some great places in Sin City to watch all the big games, so you don’t have to miss out on a single play.

Admission to Stadium Swim at Circa Las Vegas starts at just $15, but if you want to make an event of it, you can upgrade to a water couch, cabana, poolside box, or day bed. Purchase your tickets here.

If you don’t mind moving off the Las Vegas Strip to watch the games, Palace Station offers Touchdowns & Turkey, which is a load of fun.
Score great deals on pitchers and shots. Plus, if you want something to eat, they’re also offering a Thanksgiving plate that’s filled with food.

Thanksgiving Eve Fremont Street Bar Crawl

Start your Thanksgiving weekend off right with the Fremont Street Bar Crawl. Make your way along some of the most popular bars on Fremont Street, complete with a free cover charge, VIP entry, exclusive drink specials, and an option to ride on the party bus to the Encore Beach Club.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering in Las Vegas is a wonderful, rewarding way to spend your Thanksgiving weekend. It’s also a nice thing for families to do together. There are plenty of opportunities to spread some love on Turkey Day.

The Las Vegas Rescue Mission always puts on a feast and invites the community to dine with them. They’re also hosting a Thanksgiving Meal Drive and are currently accepting donations.

Thanksgiving Heroes provides meals to all families in need on Thanksgiving. They’re currently looking for helpers to donate, volunteer, or sponsor a family in need.

Gobble Gobble Give has been feeding the hungry on Thanksgiving around the country for 25+ years. This year, they’re looking for volunteers in Las Vegas. Help up by showing up to their potluck, family-style dinner, or donate to help the cause.
