What’s going on in the Waterloo Region in NovemberCan't miss local events in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and beyond!
November. A taste of winter but, perhaps, pleasant days when you can leave the jacket at home. Whatever the attire, you’ll still find lots of reasons to get out and about in Kitchener-Waterloo and area this month.
With Christmas on the horizon holiday craft sales and bazaars abound. You’ll find a number of them at varied locations every weekend throughout the month.
If a holiday shopping extravaganza makes you jolly St. Jacobs pulls out all the stops with St. Jacobs Sparkles from Nov. 16-19. This much anticipated village wide event offers extended shopping hours, multitudes of twinkling lights, festive goodies and one-time savings and promotions. Watch for Santa on Thursday evening or Saturday afternoon. Brentwood Livery will be there to take you from the extended parking lot to the heart of the action.
Hespeler Village brings on the Christmas spirit with Music and Lights in the Village on Nov. 24. This free family event features a play, a concert and a magical tree lighting ceremony at Hespeler Town Centre.
If music gets you motivated you can break out the leg warmers and big hair on Nov, 4 with the Grand Social Series: Eighties Edition. This 19+ event in support of the Grand River Hospital invites you to dress in your best 80’s garb and dance to the classic and, sometimes, not so classic tunes of the times.
Homes, Gardens and All That Jazz serves up jazz, dinner, auctions and a flower boutique on Nov, 18 in support of Heartwood Place. This event is hosted at the Deer Ridge Golf Club.
If laid back is more your style check out the Kitchen Ceilidh at McDougall Cottage in Cambridge on Nov. 2.
Engaging artistic and culture is always on display in K-W and takes fascinating form with Night\Shift on Nov. 4. The night the clocks roll back Downtown Kitchener will be permeated with free pop-up art, performance and placehacking.
It will be the dog days of November at Snyder’s Farm on November 5 with the Pound Dog Rescue Howler. This family event, dogs included, helps to raise funds for local dogs in need. Demonstrations, fundraising dog walk, BBQ, vendors and raffles round out the day.
Learn to make your own holiday wreath and enjoy a tasty beer on Nov. 23 at THEMUSEUM. The Living Fresh Flower Studio and School includes access to the exhibits, instruction and materials for the wreath and a frosty one from Creemore Springs.
Check out the opposite of frosty at Cooking The Past at Schneider Haus on Nov. 25. Part of a historic cooking series you’ll learn about the workings of a wood stove and help prepare a meal, heritage style. Check out the Haus for other interesting workshops and displays this month including quilting, sausage processing and decorative paper cutting.
It’s show time at local theatres and venues. November marks the closing of Rock of Ages and the opening of Beauty and the Beast at Dunfield Theatre in Cambridge. Death of a Salesman closes and Hunk opens at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse and Kings and Queens to Country continues at the St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre. Centre in the Square has a busy lineup this month including Peter Mansbridge and Diana Krall.
Fans of Canada’s game will have plenty of opportunities to cheer on their local team with the Kitchener Rangers season in full swing.
