Take your gaming to the next level, dust off your dancing shoes and kick off the holidays this month. Check out what’s happening in Anaheim this November!

Dia de Los Muertos Celebrations

Throughout Anaheim, November 2nd will bring Day of the Dead celebrations alive. The Downtown Anaheim Community Center hosts a Dia de Los Muertos celebration filled with music, crafts, altars and food. The free event kicks off at 6:30 PM. Urbana at the Anaheim Packing House is offering farm fresh Mexican inspired plates, live music, tequila and mezcal during their observance.  

All week leading up to November 2nd, Los Angeles’s Olvera Street will be celebrating with community altars, children’s workshops, live entertainment and face painting.

California Wine Festival

White wine and white sand are a near perfect combination. Huntington Beach’s Paséa Hotel & Spa hosts the California Wine Festival on November 9th and 10th. Hundreds of wines created by California’s best wineries will be paired with gourmet appetizers prepared by top chefs. Savor the sips while overlooking the surf and enjoying live music.
