Edwards Communities’ Around Town Picks: Fun Things to Do this November

November brings the holiday season to Columbus Ohio, and the city has lots of fun activities taking place this month! So whether you live in Columbus, are visiting relatives, or are here on business, we hope you can get out and enjoy all the festivals, sporting events and musical performances our city has to offer!

Edwards Communities has put together a list of events we think you shouldn’t miss! Here are our “Around Town Picks” for November:

Ohio State Football – Saturdays, Home & away

The Buckeyes will conclude their regular season this month with home games against Nebraska on November 3 and the team up north on November 24; and away games at Michigan State on November 10 and Maryland on November 17. If the Bucks play away or you can’t snag tickets to a home game, there are plenty of places to tailgate in Columbus and cheer our Buckeyes to a win, including Edwards’ private club, The Barn! Go Bucks!  


Columbus Blue Jackets, November 6, 10, 15, 23 & 29, Nationwide Arena

Hockey season has begun and our Columbus Blue Jackets have home games scheduled this month against the Dallas Stars, New York Rangers, Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Minnesota Wild. Get ticket information on their website.


The Rocky Horror Show– through November 16, The Garden Theater Green Room

This wildly popular tribute to sci-fi and B-grade horror movies will entertain you with vibrant songs, dance, and an interactive experience you won’t forget.


Legally Blonde, The Musical– November 8-18, Thurber Theatre

Based on the movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde puts a musical spin on a California sorority girl who remains true to herself while shaking up the stereotypes of Harvard Law School. Learn more and get your tickets here.
