Seattle Events Calendar

October 2013

Seattle Events Calendar October 2013 - Fall is in full swing and the leaves are turning.

There are lots of things to do this month including the Chocolate Festival, picking your own pumpkin, or finding your way through a corn maze.

Enjoy a Seahawks game or see a show at one of Seattle's historic theatres.  How about The Wizard of Oz at the Paramount Theatre?

There's also Bon Jovi, the Pumpkin Bash, and the Earshot Jazz Festival. And of course, there are lots of Halloween events happening around the city.
