5 Things to Do in Charlottesville in November

Brilliant leaves It’s hard to believe that November is just a week away. I cansmell that Thanksgiving turkey already.  This year we are buying a locally raised turkey (across the road from us). We were able to do that a couple of years ago and it was fantastic!  If you get a chance to buy locally raised turkeys by all means do so.

Anyway, besides eating turkey next month I scouted out a few things you might enjoy.

 

  1. Sunday – November 1:   Barney J. Conrath: A Photography Retrospective in Black & White from 5:30-8:00pm at FIREFISH Gallery.  As many of you know we love photography, particualrly black & white.  Barney’s work focuses on the quirkiness of nature and man-made machines.
  2. Saturday – November 7:  Mountfair Vineyards’ Fall Oyster Festival, from 4:00-8:00pm at Mountfair Vineyards.  This annual event is one not to miss.  There will be plenty of oysters and some great wines.  Plus singer/songwriter Karen Jonas provides the entertainment.
  3. Wednesday – November 11:  Veteran’s Day – thank your active duty or retired veteran for their service to our country
  4. Saturday – November 14:   Vinegar-Making Workshop , from 9:30-11:00am at Monticello.  Learn how to make artisanal vinegars that you can enjoy year-round.  We will provide an early breakfast for you so that you won’t miss a thing.
  5. Sunday – November 22:  Mistletoe Market, from 10:00am-4:00pm at the Boar’s Head.  Get a jump on your Christmas shopping (ok, some of you may be way ahead of me) by spending the day at this fascinating market where you can purchase one-of-a-kind handmade and artisan items.

 

If you need more ideas, do not hesitate to ask.

Looking forward to seeing you!
