Best Of October, Southern California Events

We've added nearly 200 events to the October calendar! With so many cool things to do, these are some of my favorites. (Click on the links to get more information.)

  • Mid-Autumn Moon Celebration -- Enjoy Traditional Dance and musical performances, Shaolin Kung Fu, crafts, painting demonstrations, Tea and Mooncake samples, plus historical Chinese Costumes.
  • Alpine Village Oktoberfest -- Perhaps you’re recalling Oktoberfest as the rather drunken way you passed a month in those long ago, pre-kid days. No more Oktoberfests for you! But wait: Yummy Food, people who wear Lederhosen, Oom-Pah Bands, Crazy Chicken Dancing! That sounds like something the kids could love! (And, yes, there is Beer.)
  • Artisanal L.A. Fall Show -- Taste, shop and sample at this seasonal show that celebrates the city’s finest local Artisanal Vendors and Handmade Edibles. Kids can learn the difference between handmade delicious and mass-produced blah (and do come Cool Crafts themselves); you can get a jump start on Holiday Gifts and pantry staples.
  • Autumn Sea Fair -- It’s an autumn fair without a pumpkin in sight, a welcome relief this time of year! Instead, this unique event offers Ocean-related activities for every age, including Face-Painting, an exciting marine life Puppet Show, and a Giant Origami demonstration. 
  • 1st Annual Haunted History at Los Encinos -- A family friendly Haunted History program at Los Encinos State Historic Park. Activities include Pumpkin Carving, Trickhistory-or-Treat, Ghostly Noise contest, Jake Storyville Ghost Story Time, Haunted Tours, Unliving History costumed characters, twilight Blacksmith demonstration, and a screening of the spooky silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
