This is our 3rd post about one of the best times of the year throughout the state of Delaware, now spotlighting fall festivals taking place in November. Check out our earlier posts to learn about fun events in September and October. You can get even more detailed information about events happening in central and southern Delaware and Delmarva in the Cape Gazette’s Fall Festivals Guide

Northern Delaware

  • Rockwood Paranormal Investigation, November 5. If you’re still in a Halloween frame of mind in early November, sign up to explore the Rockwood Museum, an English-style country estate located in Wilmington and built between 1851 and 1854 by banker Joseph Stanley. During this event you’ll join experienced paranormal investigators as they search from the basement to grand rooms for ghostly hauntings with the help of sophisticated equipment. You’ll need your most comfortable walking shoes and will need to be comfortable with lots of stairs.

    If you’re intrigued by Rockwood but looking for something a little less frightening, visit its website for other tours and activities.
  • November weekends at The Market at Coverdale, Saturdays and Sundays. Located in beautiful Greenville, this market celebrates the final weeks of the fall harvest with fresh vegetables, pastured eggs, cheeses, breads, honey and more. It all happens on a working farm with more food options, hiking and activities for all ages.

Central Delaware

  • 18th Century Market Fair, Dover, November 5 . Visit Delaware’s capital city to experience the way locals in the 1700s shopped for goods and select all kinds of modern yet classic crafts and foods.
  • Blue Hen Comic Con and Toy Expo, Dover, November 19. If you want to sport the “cool factor” with your kids or grandkids you can’t go wrong with this event celebrating toys, games, animation and all kinds of crafts.

Southern Delaware and Delmarva

  • Delaware Resorts 55+ Expo, Lewes, November 5 . This is a fun and free event for all ages taking place at Cape Henlopen High School. It’s a great way to learn about all of the ways to live your best life from health and wellness firms, healthcare agencies, fitness programs, realtors, home builders and renovators and financial services providers.
  • Riverwalk Farmer’s Market, Milford, November 19 and 26. On Saturdays, Delaware’s oldest farmer’s market offers locally grown produce, meats, seafood, baked goods, prepared foods and handcrafted arts in beautiful downtown Milford. 

About Christine Davis

Christine grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania in a small town called Pittston, which is located between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton. Upon graduation, she enlisted in the United States Air Force, where she proudly served for eight + years at a variety of bases throughout the world, including Holland, Korea, and New Mexico. While in the Air Force, Christine spent most of her time working in the civil engineering career field where she thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with such a diverse group of people with varying backgrounds and experiences, and learned so much from each of them. Christine’s last assignment in the Air Force was at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, and that’s when she discovered the Delaware beaches. Growing up in PA, her family spent time at the Jersey shore. But once she moved to MD, she became one of those many drivers making the trek across the Chesapeake Bay Friday afternoon to visit the Delaware beaches for the weekend. Upon Christine’s separation from the Air Force, she spent a small amount of time working in Washington, D.C., but it didn’t take long before she was drawn to the quiet, slow pace of Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, “the nation’s summer capital”. Christine moved to Rehoboth Beach in 1999 and finished her degree in Business at Delaware Tech. At the time she was working for a large physician organization when a friend recommended that she become a REALTOR because she loved helping people and loved looking at homes. She was reluctant for quite a while because Christine didn’t think of herself as a salesperson. But after much urging by her friend, Christine decided to get her real estate license in 2003 and has not looked back since. Christine still doesn’t think of herself as a salesperson, but rather a facilitator between buyer and seller, working toward a common goal. Christine aims to make the process as smooth and fun as possible but also educates the buyer and seller along the way so they can make the best decision possible. Christine now lives in Lewes and although she misses the mountains of PA, she thoroughly enjoys spending as much time as possible at the beach, especially Cape Henlopen State Park. Christine’s philosophy in life is that it’s too short. Never spend so much time making a living that you forget how to live.
