Here is a list of community events for Thanksgiving in Las Vegas for 2017. 

The Golden Tiki, Las Vegas' world-famous premier tiki bar, has announced the return of its "Charlie Brown" Thanksgiving celebration on Nov. 22 at 9 p.m.

Mindful of Las Vegas' many "Thanksgiving orphans" (hospitality workers unable to celebrate the holiday with their families), The Golden Tiki brought to life this irreverent celebration centering around a recreation of the 1973 Emmy-winning TV special's holiday feast.

Just as Snoopy did, The Golden Tiki will be setting a ping pong table with buttered toast, popcorn, pretzel sticks and jelly beans served on frisbee plates. To enhance the spirit, the bar's favorite jazz combo The Sharps will be performing a selection of numbers from the Peanuts films made famous by Vince Guaraldi.  The Golden Tiki's menu of handcrafted tiki cocktails, sipping rums, craft beers and Dole Whip will also be available. Admission is free, and anyone dressed in Historic Pilgrim or Native American garb will enjoy free tiki punch.

A little can go a long way this holiday season. House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, inside Mandalay Bay hotel-casino, invites Las Vegans to embrace the holiday spirit by helping House of Blues local charitable partner, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, during the ‘Feed the Souls’ food drive. From Nov. 11 – Dec. 11, House of Blues Restaurant & Bar will be collecting canned and non-perishable food items to give to the Mission to help them continue their work feeding the less fortunate in the community.

For every non-perishable item donated, guests will not only receive 30 percent off their purchase at House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, they will also be entered into the Feel Good Bonus Raffle to win amazing prizes including show tickets, House of Blues gear and more. Guests cannot use more than one promotion per person for dining, each guest is requested to provide a donation for the discount to apply to the entire group.

Inspirada, the fully planned community in Henderson and the nation's ninth top-selling master-planned community, is celebrating the upcoming holiday with a special Thanksgiving edition of its Farmers' Market at Solista Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 11. Guests are invited to join Chef Mayra Trabulse as she hosts a festive vegan cooking demonstration. She will demonstrate how to prepare a Thanksgiving meal free of meat, dairy, and eggs that use seasonal produce, hearty grains and legumes.

Enjoy other family-friendly activities including face painting, a children’s art activity, and live music. The fresh52 Farmers’ Market is a friendly, open-air market showcasing more than 25 choice vendors with organic produce, freshly baked goods, gourmet items, artesian wares, and more. Guests can also purchase artisan crafts such as herbal and holistic oils, soaps, remedies, art, and jewelry.

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum, 900 Las Vegas Boulevard North, will host a week of “thanks” offering complimentary admission honoring a selection of residents.  The Museum Gives Thanks event will take place Nov. 20 and will continue through Nov. 24.  The Museum’s regular hours will be honored for this week-long event - open daily 9 am – 4 pm
