CULTURE | Granville | Friendsgiving Potluck for any interested!

November 23, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Embrace the joy of the holiday season at our exuberant Friendsgiving Potluck celebration hosted at the Granville Center for the Arts! Spearheaded by Ryan McGuire—our co-founder and creative director—alongside his delightful family (Susan Villarreal and Bella), this event promises to transform the Thanksgiving experience into a communal feast of happiness and connection.

Hailing from afar, the McGuires have found a home in Granville, creating lasting bonds with local friends with whom they usually share the holidays. This year, they are extending a heartfelt invitation to YOU—our cherished Granville and Denison community. Whether you’re a student far from home or a local resident, we’re tearing down the walls of distance and solitude, making sure everyone has a family to celebrate with this Thanksgiving.

Savor the succulent taste of roasted turkey, indulge in delectable homemade sides, and treat yourself to tasty cookies, all lovingly prepared by the McGuires. Bring along your favorite dish to share in the bounty to help make this the most delicious meal ever! With a spread of exciting games and creative crafts, laughter and joy are guaranteed.

This event is our gift to the community—free, open to all, and brimming with the spirit of togetherness. Let’s gather, make new friends, and share in the abundance of the season. Friendsgiving is more than just a meal; it’s a celebration of community, friendship, and the magic of the holidays. Join us in creating memories that will last a lifetime!

Join us in thanking these local community champions for helping make Friendsgiving extra special:

  • Homestead Beer Company for donating drinks!
  • Bella’s Beans for donating coffee!
  • Granville Bread Company will be baking an abundant selection of breads!
  • Ray Rays will be smoking some extra delicious meat!
