Hardly a day goes by without something to do in Phoenix during the month of November. Organizations in Phoenix, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale and other communities present many opportunities for fun and entertainment during the month.

These are events that you can count on year in and year out. All dates, prices, and activities mentioned are subject to change without notice. Check the website or call to confirm information. The items listed here are appropriate for families unless otherwise indicated. If the event is free, I'll mention that, too.

Looking for big name concerts, shows or theatre? Check this calendar for November performances.

Christmas Holiday tree lightings, festivals and events typically begin in mid-November and continue through the end of December and even into January. You can find extensive listings of those activities and events in the Greater Phoenix Christmas Holiday Guide.
