Last minute fall-themed events in NYC to savor the weather

If you've been inside this entire time, this might be your last chance to savor the colorful leaves before winter comes

If you live in New York, you know there's always a bundle of events going on all over the city — however, it all seemed to come to a halt when the weather suddenly dropped at the beginning of November.

You're probably currently chilling inside with your hot chocolate, your fluffiest blanket and the full season of your favorite show on Netflix right now — obviously, "The Office" for me.

But the season isn't over yet! There's still so much to do before you start breaking out the holiday decorations and hibernating for the winter — here are some last minute fall-themed events you should definitely hit up before the season is over.

Renegade Craft Fair

The Renegade Craft Fair features over 200 crafters and makers at the Metropolitan Pavilion — the fair is live from Nov 18 to 19, starting at 11 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. This is RCF's 13th year in New York and I'm sure it'll be just as special as its previous years.

You'll be able to get a head start on holiday shopping while chomping down on food vendors, sipping on inventive drinks and listening to music from local DJ's. From jewelry and pottery to fashion and beauty, there's no doubt you'll find what you're looking for.


WhiskyFest is a chance to taste whiskies from all around the world on Nov 16 — but tickets are a bit pricey starting at $275 for general admission. However, you'll receive a bunch of swag with the ticket like a crystal nosing glass, gift bag, buffet and of course, over 350 whiskies to try.

Swing by the Marriott Marquis in Time Square at 6 p.m. and drink to your heart's content for three and a half hours. Attend seminars and mingle with fellow whisky enthusiasts — but make sure you're over 21.

Infinity Mirrors exhibit

Yayoi Kusama is finally bringing their famous Infinity Mirrors exhibit to New York — from Nov 2 to Dec 16, you can view this piece at three various galleries in Chelsea and the Upper East Side.

The entire exhibit is free, however, lines are rumoured to be up to four hours long. You can walk inside some rooms while only being able to view others through a pair of peepholes.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The epitome of November in New York is probably the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade — for three hours on Nov 23, you can view the spectacle either on your television or on 6th ave and Central Park West.

This year, Gwen Stefani's supposed to perform alongside Martha Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg and Chrissy Metz. There's also supposed to be some new balloons so grab some friends or family and head out Thanksgiving Day.

Bryant Park Winter Village

Each season, Bryant Park opens up its Winter Village around November — this year it goes from Oct 28 to Jan 2. The Winter Village includes holiday shops, good eats, free admission ice skating and lots of events.

From 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. you can visit their holiday shops in their midtown-located park, strap on a pair of skates and experience winter while the leaves are still changing color.
