This Thanksgiving, The Phoenician invites guests to join us for what promises to be a weekend of fun for the whole family!

It wouldn’t be a memorable holiday without a sumptuous feast, and there are plenty of tasty options throughout the day! Thanksgiving Brunch begins at 10 a.m. in Il Terrazzo with a delectable assortment of breakfast favorites, classic entrees, a carving station and a raw bar. Patrons will also have two prix fixe culinary selections on the day’s menu, as both J&G Steakhouse and Il Terrazzo will be serving traditional Thanksgiving dinners. Those looking to enjoy a prepared meal without the fuss can take advantage of our To-Go offering, available at $195 for six-eight guests, and freshly created by our award-winning chefs.

Another treat is presented from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., when visitors have the chance to meet one of the stars of our very own children’s book, Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends.  “Snickers” the dog will be on hand to sign “pawtographs,” and take pictures.  Donations will also be accepted for Gabriel’s Angels, a local organization helping at-risk children.

After all the feasting, Phoenician guests can get an early start on holiday shopping, as the resort will be offering a complimentary shuttle to Scottsdale Fashion Square on Friday, Nov. 29, beginning at 4:00 a.m. Shuttles will depart every two hours throughout the day until 4:00 p.m.

Guests looking to burn off the week’s calories are invited to The Phoenician’s first-ever Turkey Trot! The non-competitive race/walk begins at 8:00 a.m. and is also open to Valley residents for a $10 registration fee. Costumes are strongly encouraged as there will be a prize for best dressed!  After some exercise, the young and the young-at-heart will enjoy the unveiling of the resort’s annual holiday Gingerbread House – one of the largest in the state of Arizona.
