20 Events This November in Southwest Florida

Fall is a time of change, even in Southwest Florida, where the weather doesn’t change much, but the social season brings a flurry of fresh activity to the region. Plus, as local groups begin to resettle after Hurricane Ian, you have plenty of opportunities to re-engage with the community. Art lovers can check out Anne Stagg and Laura Tanner’s combined exhibition at the Alliance for the Arts, while foodies can indulge in WINK’s Taste of The Town festival. If you’re looking for a way to give back during these times, the Fort Myers Fall Craft Fair donates a portion of the proceeds to hurricane relief efforts. Then when you switch into holiday mode, don’t miss the musical version by The Naples Players Christmas carol. You won’t feel like staying at home much this month.
