October Events in Chicago

Fall in Chicago is here (we've got some #ChicagoLeafPeeping tips for you!) and there are still a lot of exciting outdoor events happening in October. Beer festivals pick up steam as Oktoberfest celebrations carry on through the month. One highlight: Friday Night Flights at Chicago Riverwalk Oktoberfest on October 13. Citywide celebrations and Chicago special events pack the calendar too: Chicago Architecture Biennial and the 40th annual Chicago Marathon included. And don't forget Halloween!
