Kick Off Turkey Month With These Fun Local and Regional Festivals

November 3, 2021

We begin our transition this week out of the Fall Festival Season and into the 2021 holiday season, with Thanksgiving now just three weeks away and Christmas to follow shortly after.

We hope everyone got to enjoy one last weekend outdoors a few days ago, highlighted by the 2021 Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler’s Festival in Rehoboth Beach. Mother Nature threatened to wash away all the fun, but thankfully the nor’easter that came up the coast blew in and out on Friday.

This week’s featured events are a bit on the lighter side, due to the calendar switching over now into November. But there are still some fun things to see and do throughout Delaware and coastal Maryland over the next few days.

We begin with a fun event on the Ocean City Boardwalk and then move into southern Delaware and eventually upstate into Dover and Wilmington.

In all, we have eight great options to tell you about for the weekend of November 5-7 here in the region.

Pick your favorite and have a great time!
