Plan Your November Fun

Get Up! Don’t Fall. There’s Plenty Still to Do. 

Before you put away the sandals and shorts and pull out fuzzy sweaters, consider a hybrid. There are plenty of warm days left, and chilly nights without mosquitoes. And Delaware has plenty to offer. 

Before you roast your turkey to a safe temperature, consider these attractions and distractions. 

We all know about Halloween and SeaWitch, etc., but did you know that November comes with lots of surprises such as garden tours before you spend a lot on holiday gifts? 

November, the stepsister of glorious October and glamorous December is a month in which so much happens. Underrated like a comma between holidays, she actually gleams with colors and events and ideas. 

Here’s a good lineup. 

Start the festive season off with the Holiday Craft Fair at the Vines of Sandhill on Sat Nov 04, 2023 at 24040 Harvest Circle, Milton, DE 19968! Get ready to immerse yourself in a festive atmosphere filled with creativity and holiday cheer. Discover unique and handcrafted treasures made by local artisans, from stunning artwork to cozy crocheted items, fused glass, paper crafts and delicious homemade treats. 

On November 4th and 5th, there’s another expo for those of us 55+-plus people. Check out Delaware Resorts Expo to plan a project or think for a minute about it. 

Start the season with an autumn wagon ride at Lums Pond State Park. They wrap up their fall rides the first weekend of November. Last rides: Friday (Nov. 3) 4pm, 5:15pm | Saturday (Nov. 4) 3pm, 4pm, 5:15pm | Sunday (Nov. 5) 3pm, 4pm

From November 8th through the 11th, the Rehoboth Independent Film Festival, celebrates independent films as its name indicates. For those who prefer brews, in Milton, Dogfish Head Brewery also as the name implies hosts special events throughout the harvest season. 

Before Mother Winter asserts her winds, on November 11th, please support the Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park between 9 am – 3 pm at their “Christmas Boutique and Books and Crafts” sale. 

For those happy people who cannot stand that differential between Halloween and Christmas, you can also celebrate by enjoying Enchanted Winter Celebration, hosted by Schell for a generous six weeks with free admission. Bring on those grandkids so they can see a very magical display of lights, music, and even an ice rink. 

Dewey Sip and Shop

Still another opportunity for purchasing holiday gifts takes place Black Friday Weekend. The Dewey Sip and Shop will feature 50 local artists who will be selling a wide array of handmade goods ranging from ceramics, woodwork, photography and body/bath products. Attendees will have an opportunity to make their own art or just relax with a beverage from the Sip and Shop Bar while listening to live music. Hours are 11-4 on Friday, November 25, Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27.     

So, before November flies by, enjoy all that our beautiful state of Delaware has to offer. Bundle a bit, but enjoy our mild winters we all saved up for.
