November is going to be a busy month! Several local area municipalities have elections on the 2nd, clocks turn back an hour when Daylight saving time ends on the 7th, Veterans Day is on the 11th (although the parade in downtown Charleston will be on the 6th) and Thanksgiving will be celebrated on the 25th this year. The Charleston area also has a few annual fairs and festivals happening this month, like the 8th Annual Charleston Beer Week (1st-7th), the 2021 Coastal Carolina Fair (1st-7th), the 2021 Blues Festival (20th) and more!

There’s also a variety of sports, entertainment and other special events taking place as well as the continuation of several area farmers markets. Runners, lace up your sneakers because Charleston is offering the  (6th), the 7th Annual Sweet Tea Half Marathon and 10k (13th), the 3rd Annual Huffin’ for the Stuffin’ 5k at Carnes Crossroads (25th), and the 44th Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Day Run & Gobble Wobble 5K (25th) races this month. In preparation for the holidays, the Holiday Festival of Lights begins on the 11th at James Island County Park, the Holiday Lights Driving Tour starts on the 26th at Santee Cooper’s Headquarters in Moncks Corner, and A Christmas Celebration Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place in Summerville on the 30th, to name a few.
