5th Annual Friendsgiving – 11/21/2023.
Location: The Wilson Hotel in Big Sky, MT
The ever-changing tapestry of seasons in Big Sky unveils a series of unique events that celebrate our town’s abundant offerings. As winter descends upon us, the mountains brace for skiers, the Town Center illuminates, and The Wilson Hotel beckons a multitude for its annual Friendsgiving dinner.
In its 5th year, the collaboration between The Wilson and Sweet Buns Catering anticipated their largest turnout yet, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The line for the complimentary Thanksgiving feast snaked through the lobby, drawing local employees who eagerly awaited the sumptuous spread meticulously prepared for the occasion. What initially began as a gesture to feed those working on Thanksgiving has blossomed into something far more profound—it’s become a welcoming embrace for new town members, an opportunity to share the holiday spirit with fresh faces, and a vibrant initiation into our winter festivities, encapsulating the warm hospitality that defines our community. Friendsgiving has organically evolved into a winter tradition, marking the inauguration of our Town Center season in many ways.
A heartfelt appreciation extends to all the volunteers and contributors who generously supported the Big Sky Food Bank with their donations. Gratitude is also owed to The Wilson Hotel, Sweet Buns Catering, Block 3, and Tips Up for their exceptional hosting and preparations that made this event an unforgettable success!
