8 Castro Events To Keep You Busy This Thanksgiving Week
By Steven Bracco - Published on November 23, 2016.

If you're in town this Thanksgiving week and looking to get out of the house, we've got some suggestions for you.

With many people off work for the holiday, why not start celebrating a little early? Stop on by Moby Dick for Grace Towers' dickATnite 3 Year Anniversary tonight to get the party started.

If you don't want to cook but are looking for a Thanksgiving meal tomorrow, head on over to The Cove On Castro. They'll be preparing a full Thanksgiving meal with all the sides; a slice of pumpkin pie is included.

Ahead of the live-action release of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" next year, enjoy the animated version one more time at the Castro Theatre this weekend. Sing along to some of your favorite tunes, and come dressed as your favorite character; all in attendance will receive a goody bag.

On Sunday evening, join in the annual candlelight vigil for Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone, who were assassinated by Dan White at City Hall on November 28th, 1978. The vigil will reflect on events that have transpired this year, including the mass shooting at Pulse Orlando, and the recent presidential election. Following the vigil there'll be a march to Harvey's former camera shop, now the HRC store.

Monday night, the Castro Merchants will light the annual holiday tree at 18th & Castro. The event will be hosted by Donna Sachet with holiday music from SF Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band and SF Gay Men's Chorus.

Immediately following the tree lighting, head over to SOMArts Cultural Center for a Safety Seminar hosted by Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, CCOP (Castro Community on Patrol) and SF Bay Area Leather Alliance. This event will address rising safety concerns and issues across the LGBTQ community.
