Check out all the fun heading your way in October!

By Chip Chandler — Digital Content Producer

The leaves may soon fall, but the number of entertainment options just keeps growing. Check here for your comprehensive guide to October fun!

A few notes: 

  • Click the event title for more information (where available).
  • Except for special events, I'm limiting the concert listings to touring bands to make this list somewhat more manageable; check our Friday music listings every week to see where all of your local favorites are playing.
  • This list is fluid. Check back for updates, and check the weekly event roundups every Thursday.
  • Look for a more complete roundup of Halloween activities later in October.
  • All listings are subject to change.
