What to Do This November in The Palm Beaches

October 19, 2018

Fun festivals and mild weather make November a prime time to visit. Gather together for events, activities, marathons and more.

The year is winding down, the seasons are shifting and the festivals are in full swing. November has much to offer and much to be thankful for. 

Giving Thanks

Come out and celebrate one of the most quintessential pieces of Florida: the beautiful waterways. LagoonFest takes place on Lake Worth Lagoon, one of the most picturesque waterways and estuaries in The Palm Beaches. The event is free, and the festivities happen on November 3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Kayaking Lake Worth Lagoon

See just what makes the lagoon a local treasure and appreciate the beauty of this 20-mile waterway. Event attractions include wildlife presentations, kayak clean-up tours, paddleboard yoga demonstrations and a mural painting wall. Bring the whole family to see the exhibitor booths and kid zone. It’s a great way to get in touch with nature and learn about the lagoon.  

Post-Edwardian England Meets Modern-Day Florida

Don’t hold back—we all love to watch a little drama. And now you can immerse yourself in the high-stakes story of “Downton Abbey.” The iconic sets and elaborate costumes are on display in West Palm Beach November 10-April 22, 2019, as part of “Downton Abbey: The Exhibition.” 

Downton Abbey costumes

Explore post-Edwardian fashion and soak in the enchantment of the décor, including the elegant dining room. All ages are welcome, and the event is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., with tickets available until 6 p.m. See for yourself why there was never a dull moment in Downton Abbey.  

End the Year Strong

Jumpstart your fitness journey surrounded by beautiful views. The FITTEAM Palm Beaches Marathon sends runners through tropical waterfront streetscapes, and the best part is there isn’t a snowflake or icy road in sight. This weekend-long event presented by Jupiter Medical includes a marathon, half-marathon, 5K and relay race.

And the energy doesn’t stop when the runners hit the finish line. Parties, live music and fireworks round out the weekend in West Palm Beach. Explore the vibrant area surrounded by water views, boutique shopping, historical landmarks and good vibes.

The events take place November 30-December 2, and registration is still open. This race is a Boston Qualifier.

It’s Easy Being Green

It’s officially greenmarket season in The Palm Beaches, and whether you’re in search of unlimited mimosas on the waterfront or live music in the park, we’ve got the marketplace for you.

West Palm Beach GreenMarket

A local staple, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket sets up Saturday mornings on the water at the end of Clematis Street. Stock up on local produce and fresh baked goods, plus there’s free activities for the kids—and $10 unlimited mimosas for the grown-ups. The green market and bazaar in Royal Palm Beach has shade and seating, which comes in handy in South Florida even in November. And its site, Veterans Park, has an interactive fountain for the kids to cool off in. Gourmet fare is available at the Delray Beach GreenMarket, held in Old School Square Park and featuring live music weekly. Other popular markets take place in Palm Beach Gardens, Lake Worth, Wellington and Jupiter.
