ThanksLiving 2018: A Celebration for Turkeys

November 3, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


It’s time to celebrate Turkeys! Yes, ThanksLiving is back and it’s more exciting than ever before!




ThanksLiving 2018 will be held on Saturday, November 3rd from 11am-4pm on the grounds of Indraloka

Animal Sanctuary’s brand new property in Dalton, PA! But that’s not all- we are excited to announce that as part of ThanksLiving 2018, we will have open touring at Indraloka’s current property in Mehoopany, PA on Sunday, November 4th. While a small group of residents (those adorable turkeys and possibly a few of their clucking and oinking friends) will have moved into their new home in Dalton, we want you to be able to spend time will all of the residents, so join us the next day as we give love to those still in Mehoopany, too!

Please join Indraloka along with our celebrity co-hosts on Saturday for a fun, informative, and heart-warming day as we honor our turkey residents and celebrate compassion. Our co-hosts are Olympian Rebecca Soni; Olympian Malachi Davis; news anchor, fitness enthusiast, and television host, Paola Giangiacomo; WBRE Eyewitness News Anchor, Mark Hiller; and author of “The Skeptical Vegan” and “The Smart Parents Guide to Raising Vegan Kids,” Eric Lindstrom.

Be among the first to visit the future home of Indraloka, and get an exclusive sneak peek into the plans and designs of the new space. Not only will you have the chance to see it, you will have the chance to be a part of it, too! ThanksLiving 2018 guests will have special access to naming opportunities for our new home- that means your name, or the name of a beloved, whether human or nonhuman, of your choosing will be a part of Indraloka’s home forever. Naming opportunities will be available for all budgets.

Celebrate ThanksLiving’s main event as our feathered friends strut in their annual parade from the barn to their own fully decorated table as they enjoy a meal complete with spinach salad, fruit and seeds, cranberries, and even raw pumpkin pie for dessert! Along with celebrating the turkeys as they “gobble ’til they wobble,” our 2018 event will feature live music, a raffle and silent auction with the best prizes to date, and much, much more.

Now, the new property will not be ready for all of the animals to move in yet, so join us on Sunday in Mehoopany for open touring of Indraloka’s current location. Meet the other animals, hear their stories, and spend time in the location where Indraloka started – there’s not much time left to do so!

Ticket pricing includes all of the above, plus a delicious seasonal, plant-based, catered meal by Parlor City Vegan and coffee provided by Brewing Good Coffee Company. Everyone is welcome- vegan or not, we want you to celebrate this special day with us!

ThanksLiving tickets are on sale NOW for $74.99 each. Children under 5 are free. ThanksLiving has sold out every year, so get yours before they’re all gone!
