Knights Thanksgiving Dinner


Once again the Carrickfergus Knights are hosting our annual Thanksgiving, 4 Course, entertainment filled, turkey dinner. This year, with more seats, more prizes and the support of our friends at the Belfast Trojans, it is sure to be even better than before so don’t miss out as tickets can only be purchased in advance of what is sure to be a sold out event with only 200 seats available.

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without American Football, so we will be showing the 5:30pm and 9:30pm NFL games (and the 1:30am for those staying in the hotel) on a 10ft screen! or the evening of an NFL player jersey of your choice! There will be other competitions and prizes on the night.

Doors will open at 5:00pm for those who wish to watch the first game, with dinner being served at 7:00pm. This will be a ticketed event and tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets and further info are available at

The Clarion Hotel Carrickfergus is a fantastic venue and have discounted rooms if you would like to stay there for the event; please contact the hotel directly for this and reference the Thanksgiving event if interest in a room.
