Things to do in Myrtle Beach in November
By November the daytime temperatures in Myrtle Beach are usually down in the 60s, so you probably won't be spending much time on the beach. However, there’s plenty to keep you occupied, and here are a few of the events scheduled for the area.
Sunday, November 11 marks this year’s Veterans Day, and all branches of the armed services will be represented at the various ceremonies, parades and exhibits, most of which you can view from the Grand Plaza by the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The ceremonies will include the Grand Strand Patriotic Alliance and Rolling Thunder.
A three-day event that’s not to be missed is the Annual South Carolina State Bluegrass Festival. The festival takes place from Thursday, November 22 - Saturday, November 24 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Whether you’re a casual visitor, a cultural spectator or just a plain old music lover, you’ll enjoy this annual event that both educates and entertains. Bluegrass goes right back to the American roots and originates in the Appalachians. The music is influenced by Scottish, Irish and English traditional music, and many of the songs originated in the British Isles. This is definitely one for the diary.
If you’re a fan of wine, then you’ll have to take some time this month to visit La Belle Amie Vineyard for their November festivals. November 10 is their Island Fever Music Festival and a week later on November 17 is their WineStock festival. Bring along a folding chair, relax and enjoy the music and festivities.
The Intracoastal Christmas Regatta also takes place on Saturday, November 24. This is a boat parade for the benefit of needy children along the Grand Strand. The parade will feature boats ranging from dinner cruise ships to commercial shrimp boats, all creatively decorated and all shapes and sizes. This is an excellent cause and a great way of collecting toys and cash for these kids. The regatta starts close to Calabash in North Carolina and makes its way south along the Intracoastal Waterway to Dock Holidays Marina in Myrtle Beach.
Right through the month you can enjoy The Carolina Opry Christmas Special. Featuring a cast of 35, this show includes dancing, comedy, music with dazzling costumes and extravagant sets. This is a soul stirring show full of seasonal music and is always extremely popular, so be sure to book early.
The Winter Arts & Craft Show takes place at the Springmaid Beach Conference Center and has been an annual feature for almost 20 years. This 3-day event starts on November 30 and features more than 200 craft vendors. This has always been has been one of the top craft shows in the Myrtle Beach area and will be spread over 4 floors. The Palace Resort and Landmark Resort are only a short drive away from the conference center.
