November brings plenty of things to do, as Atlanta gears up for holidays from Veterans Day to Thanksgiving and full steam ahead to Christmas. Don't miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in Atlanta this November!

November in Atlanta means lots of fall fun with outdoor festivals like Lawrenceville Harvest Festival (with hay rides, a petting zoo, and live music) and Candler Park Fall Fest (with an artists' market, food trucks, and kids area). Kids are jumping (literally) for joy this November because Bounce the Mall will be at the North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville for the first three weekends in November —try the inflatable ninja course, enormous slides, and the largest ball pit on the planet. By mid month it's holiday time with popular light shows like Garden Lights, Holiday NightsStone Mountain Christmas, and new this year, Shine Light Show, a dazzling drive-thru display in Lawrenceville. 

Since we're on the topic of holiday fun, go ahead and book those Polar Express and Holiday Train Rides Near Atlanta. We also have a handy list of the Best Advent Calendars for Kids and Teens for 2022, so the holiday countdown can begin. Find even more November fun in our Fall Fun Guide for Atlanta Kids!  

We’re adding more events to our family activity calendar every day, so check it often.
