Live Music Weekend Roundup November 18 through November 20

There’s something magical with the turning of the leaves, Thanksgiving less than a week away, and people making plans to honor family and “Friendsgiving” traditions…or run thankfully to the hills for a quiet respite. Whatever your pleasure, there’s plenty to be entertained by. Local music is alive and kicking; here’s what we’ve found for your enjoyment this weekend, November 18 through November 20, 2022!

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair opens its 38th season at the Cow Palace in Daly City this weekend. A treasured annual destination for many during the holiday season, the recreated streets of Victorian London are open to visitors Saturday, November 19 and weekends through Sunday, December 18 (including the Friday after Thanksgiving) from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Advance sales only: dickensfair.com
