Everybody knows that Halloween happens in October, but what about other fun events? Do we have to wait for the very last day to celebrate? Absolutely not! This October is full of special events happening right here in our city. Check out the list below to see what’s going on:
Pink Palace Crafts Fair (at Audubon Park): October 7-10
Craft fairs may seem old-fashioned to you, but have you ever been to one? These are great places to buy unique Christmas gifts!
Wicked (at the Orpheum): October 13-31
This is one musical you don’t want to miss! If you see anything at the Orpheum, go
Zoo Boo (at the Memphis Zoo): October 22, 23, 29, 30, 31
Costume contests, trick-or-treating, magic shows, and more! This is a Halloween
favorite for kids of all ages (even the 25-year old ones like me).
Germantown Festival of Fun & Fright: October 29-30
Halloween Festival for families
The Agricenter Corn Maze: open till October 31
A favorite annual attraction. Go on Friday or Saturday to experience the haunted
Jones Orchard Corn Maze (Millington, TN): open October 1-31
An alternative to the popular Agricenter corn maze.
