Event description

Description


Bring your family to join ours at the Canadian Thanksgiving Celebration!


Nothing says fall like a good Thanksgiving dinner. This year, give thanks for a wonderful community of Canadians by celebrating with us at Alumni House on the UC Berkeley campus.

Enjoy a traditional turkey dinner with all your favourite side dishes, a complimentary host bar of beverages (alcoholic and non) and desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth. There will be family-friendly entertainment throughout the night.

In the spirit of DML Canadians Doing Good, we have selected the Alameda County Community Food Bank as the beneficiary of our event. Support our joint effort in ending hunger and poverty in the community by bringing a non-perishable food item for donation or by making a small financial donation when you arrive.

All ticket buyers will be entered into a draw to win a pair of round-trip tickets from Air Canada for travel within North America. All ticket buyers will also be entered into a draw for two tickets to one of the following special DML-hosted games at SAP Centre at San Jose: the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. San Jose Sharks hockey game or a Vancouver Canucks vs. San Jose Sharks hockey game.

DML 20th Anniversary Toques For Sale

To celebrate the DML's 20th anniversary, we will be selling limited edition and made-in-Canada toques and pins. They are available for pre-purchase online for a discount and normal prices at the door. With your support, we are able to continue to provide you Canadian arts and cultural programs throughout the year.

Cowichan toques - $40 USD

Stylish, distinct, utilitarian; are some words one might use to describe them. All we know is that they're simply the best toque in Canada, and these ones are 100% authentic; straight out of the Cowichan Valley, hand-knitted by First Nations women in Canada.

They are made of 100% raw (undyed) Sheep's Wool - a unique thick wool that isn't available in many places. Prepare for warmth, comfort and a piece of headgear that's going to last you a very long time.

Sporting the iconic Cowichan design, you may receive some attention; but that's OK, as you know you have become part of the 'club'.

One size fits most.

Provinces of Canada toques - $20 USD

There’s a reason you feel reassured when you find a product that reads ‘made in Canada’ on the label. To many, local manufacturing is synonymous with quality and equality, which is why the Provinces of Canada company made ‘Canada first’ the main pillar of their brand.

The Ribbed Cotton Toques are woven in Canada with 100% high-quality cotton. The toque has a flexible fit, sitting lightly and stretching comfortably. Good for a Canadian winter or a Canadian winter getaway to California.

One size fits most.

DML's 20th Anniversary Pins - $10

To celebrate our 1999 date of inception, the DML partnered with Canadian designer, Scott Boms, on limited-edition designed pins that you can wear proudly as a Canadian. Designed to give a respectful nod towards our Canadian vocabulary and heritage... all your neighbours will ask where you got your pin from! Get them before they are gone!
