Our Favorite November Events in Atlanta

Here at Alta at Jonquil, we sure do love the month of November - so many great things to do and experience around our community of Smyrna, not to mention around the rest of Atlanta! From the Thanksgiving preparations to early holiday shopping, hayrides on a cool fall day to a day enjoying spook-tacular autumn-related fun at Six Flags Over Georgia, there is just so much to love about the fall events in Atlanta! Not to mention getting ready to stuff our faces for a Thanksgiving dinner feast… :)

For our blog this week, we’re highlighting just a few of our favorite November events happening in Atlanta. Don’t let the quiet nature of this seasons fool you - there sure is lots to do!

  • Starting on November 17th (and going through January 3, 2018), Marietta Square will play host to a Winter Wonderland, and it’s the perfect atmosphere for family of all ages to enjoy the holiday spirit that encompasses our city this time of year.

  • In the mood to get outdoors on Thanksgiving Day? The Gobble Jog is happening on Nov. 23rd in Marietta for the 7th year in a row. If you’re not participating, then at least go with some friends and  family to cheer your neighbors on!

  • Enjoy the start of the holiday season with Garden Lights Holiday Nights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Explore with a tour, listen to the festive music, and experience hundreds upon thousands of the twinkling lights to get you in the spirit of the season!

  • The City of Kennesaw’s Tree Lighting Program is happening on Tuesday, Nov. 28th, at 6pm sharp - the countdown to Christmas begins, and you’ll want to be there for it!

  • DIY and craft afficionados, this one is for you: get some holiday shopping done early at the Indie Craft Experience (ICE) Holiday Shopping Spectacular! Mark your calendar for November 18-19, and show up to experience nearly 200 craft and vintage vendors at ICE’s largest event of the year. You won’t want to miss it!

Did we miss one of your favorite events around Cobb County or somewhere else in Atlanta? Let us know in the comments, and share with us what you love most about November in Atlanta. We’ll be sure to highlight some of our favorite responses on a future blog or social media post. Now excuse us, we’ve got more Thanksgiving prep to do. Gobble gobble!
