November 2022 Events

Scottish Piper

It’s November, Native American Heritage Month, and here comes cooler weather, more festivals (some are new!), seasonal holidays and related events! There’s the Coastal Carolina Fair (1st-7th), AfroSouth Film Festival (4th-6th), Charleston Literary Festival (4th-13th), 51st Annual Charleston Scottish Games and Highland Gathering (5th), 1st Annual Charleston Oyster Week (6th-18th), 16th Annual Nuovo Cinema Italiano Film Festival (10th-13th), YallFest young adult book festival (11th-12th), Annual Holiday Festival of Lights (11th-12/31) and other festivals.  Holidays this month include Election Day (8th), Veterans Day (11th), Thanksgiving (24th) and some fun ones found here.  Daylight Savings Time (DST) ends and clocks go back an hour on Sunday the 6th.  While several area farmers markets have now closed for the year or are closing this month, a few operate year round and seasonal holiday markets are starting up. And for you true “footie” fans, FIFA World Cup begins on the 20th and runs through December 18th.  We’ve also listed lots of weekly and individual events below so you can make the most of the month!
