November is that time of year when we start thinking about the holidays. It’s also the time of year that towns and cities start decorating and begin celebrating this festive time of year.
Our beautiful town of Allen has had a great fall and is already getting into the spirit of the holiday season with some decorations going up here and there. The community calendar has some wonderful events already planned for November. Getting into the spirit as well, Dallas plans to ‘wingardium’ some music from Harry Potter film score. Disney will dazzle on ice and this is just the beginning of holiday fun!
Read on to see these spectacular events and more during November in our beautiful Allen and neighboring Dallas! Hope to see you around town..err..towns!

November Events in Dallas
Here are some fun November events to enjoy in the Big D!
The Black Keys| Nov. 14, 7 pm | Dickies Arena
Even during a nearly five-year hiatus, The Black Keys’ smoky garage rock was somewhat inescapable, always playing somewhere, whether in a commercial or a bar or via Spotify’s algorithm. Singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney continued to make music prolifically during that time, just not with each other. Carney produced and performed with Michelle Branch and recorded the theme for BoJack Horseman; Auerbach played with the Arcs and produced Cage the Elephant and Lana Del Rey, among others. But the duo, which got its start in Akron, Ohio, made a triumphant return over the summer with the release of Let’s Rock. Over 12 songs, Auerbach and Carney do what they have always done best: bash out blues-infused Americana with a fun, psychedelic twang. Though the duo recorded without Danger Mouse—the co-producer of their previous four records, including 2011’s breakthrough El Camino and 2014’s Turn Blue—there isn’t anything drastically different on the album. Basically, Let’s Rock does exactly what the title says. And that’s what they’ll do at Fort Worth’s brand-new Dickies Arena.
Brockhampton| Nov. 14, 8 pm | The Bomb Factory
First, the members of Brockhampton were just a few teenagers at The Woodlands High School. Then they were “the internet’s first boy band.” Now, the hip-hop collective is a legit phenomenon, a status solidified by its fifth album, August’s Ginger.
Chi Omega Christmas Market | Nov. 20-23 | Centennial Hall of Fair Park
The 42nd annual Chi Omega Christmas Market boasts an impressive 200 merchants with festive gifts, holiday decor, artisanal foods, women’s fashion, home goods, and more. Check the market’s website for special events like a mixology class with Katy Trail Vodka.
Todrick Hall: Haus Party | Nov. 21, 8 pm | The Bomb Factory
The term “triple threat” doesn’t have enough space for this singer, songwriter, and dancer, and choreographer, actor, playwright, and director. Hall does it all, and he does it with panache. Watch his new Netflix film, Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall, to get acquainted.
Once | Nov. 22-24 | Winspear Opera House
In the stage version of the Oscar-winning film, a Dublin street musician meets a beautiful girl who takes an interest in his love songs, just as he’s ready to give up on his dreams of making it big. Their romance inspires his most powerful music yet, but their connection is more complicated than it seems
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert | Nov. 27-Dec. 1 | Meyerson Symphony Center
The Wizarding World seems even more magical when set to a live orchestra. Watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on the big screen while the Dallas Symphony Orchestra performs John Williams’ charming score.
The 1975 | Nov. 27, 6:30 pm | The Theatre at Grand Prairie
Back from a brief hiatus and preparing to release its fourth studio album, Notes on a Conditional Form, The 1975 hasn’t missed a beat. The Manchester-born rock band sounds as manic as ever on its new single “People.” They’re in Dallas for Alterium with Catfish and the Bottlemen and SWMRS.
Turkey Trot | Nov. 28, 9 am | Dallas City Hall
The YMCA’s annual Turkey Trot is a fun, family-friendly way to kick off Thanksgiving Day in downtown Dallas. There’s a 5k run/walk, an 8-mile run, and a 1k Junior Trot for the little ones. It’s a good way to fire up your metabolism and feel better about that second plate.

There’s nothing like fall. It’s the season of pumpkin-spiced (pretty much) every thing and tons of fall fun around Allen. Pumpkin patches, the start of a new sports season, festivals, and great food make up the activities of the season. You’ve always got at least one event per day to enjoy during the fall!
Here are some examples of what you can enjoy around the area :
What The Fest
(This event sounds like a blast. We got this from their Facebook page): The goal of Weresquirrel is to make fun, entertaining and asinine films to share with the world. Or with our friends….whatever. The point is, we want to try new and different ideas, concepts, experiments and present them on a scale that could make us all rich and famous or at the very least internet celebrities.
Joking aside, our goal is to give people the opportunity to expand their talents beyond the stage or from behind the curtains. Weresquirrel Productions is all about learning new skills, testing the waters and having a good time in the process.
Fall Lantern Walk
Our Lantern Walk is designed to help kids big and small welcome and see the beauty in the darkness of the end of Daylight Saving time (aka “Fall back”). For our family and yours, we hope it becomes a magical, annual tradition. At the very least, it’s a chance to be out in the wild at night! Click here to read more about the event. Read more about why we think this is a super opportunity for you and your kids in our DIY “Fall Lanterns” activity.
Families will gather before dusk, light lanterns and enjoy an outdoor walk in the park. Please meet at the meeting spot on the map.
What do YOU need to bring?
- All you need is one or more lanterns for each family (we recommend one per family).
- If you are in one of our fall classes, you will make a lantern for the walk in class. If you have any questions, please email your leader.
- If you want to make your own lantern or make more than the one you made in class, find out how in our “Fall Lanterns” activity.
- Short on time? Just grab a flashlight, camping lantern or other light that can travel. You will still find the event magical!
What will WE have for you?
- We will provide LED tea lights. We will also have song sheets so you can join in a few lantern walk songs.
Can we bring friends?
- Of course! The more, the merrier!
Got more questions? Email your local leader. We would love to have you involved!
