Thanksgiving in the Santa Ynez Valley

Thanksgiving Restaurants

With harvest complete and a soft chill in the air, you know that autumn has arrived and Thanksgiving will soon be here. Want the nostalgia of a home-cooked meal but don’t want the stress of cooking for the whole family? You’re in for a treat because there are a bevy of restaurants where you can gather for a feast with friends in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Below is a guide to making the most of your Thanksgiving experience in the Santa Ynez Valley. Here you will find a list of what restaurants and wineries will be open, and which restaurants offer special holiday menus. For the best experience, we highly recommend calling the restaurants and tasting rooms ahead of time to ensure they still have seating availability.

But what other things to do on Thanksgiving can you partake in, especially if you have relatives to entertain? How about a little adventure on Thanksgiving Day? Vino Vaqueros Horseback Riding will be open for rides on Thanksgiving. Call (805) 944-0493 to make your reservation.

Want to work off that pumpkin pie with some fun people for a good cause? Bring your family and friends to City of Solvang’s turk-tastic 5k Turkey Trot on Friday, November 24. Also, make sure to check out our Events Calendar for a complete listing of upcoming events.

Once you’ve experienced Thanksgiving in the Santa Ynez Valley, you’ll want to keep coming back again and again. We have plenty of restaurants, hotels, things to do and outdoor activities to keep you and your family entertained year-round.
