The JBI Thanksgiving Feast Event

The JBI Thanksgiving Feast Event

It’s October and it is traditional around here to get a whole lot festive at the JBI.  Whether you are sipping on a local pint at the JBI pub, enjoying a great meal at our family-friendly restaurant or a guest checking in at our hotel lobby,  we are all decorated and ready for Thanksgiving and Halloween.  It is to be noted that while we encourage visitors to check out all of our decorations in our pub, restaurant and hotel, it is expected that social distancing is respected at all times while walking around anywhere at the JBI. Explore, have fun but be safe.

This of course leads us to one of the most anticipated events of the year at the James Bay Inn, our annual JBI Thanksgiving Festive Feast, which is happening October 11th and October 12th.   This annual tradition over the years has been proven to be very popular with the locals as well as guests from around the world. After all, there are few things better than having a truly house-made traditional Thanksgiving Dinner at the JBI. We look forward to seeing you. If you have other plans…. on behalf of the entire James Bay Inn Family, we would like to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.


We look forward to getting festive with you!
