Arlington Heights Family Events For October

Arlington Heights October Events

Halloween is approaching quickly, and as summer weather gives in to windy fall days and autumn foliage, Arlington Heights events continue to offer a wide variety of activities for adults and children of all ages.

This year’s Farmer’ Market is coming to a close in October; the last one is scheduled for Saturday the 11th, so mark your calendars and take advantage of the final harvests for this year. As always, if you have a community event to share, please let us know two weeks in advance. We’re happy to post it here.

Love & The Outcome

When: October 1, 2014, concert starts at 7:30PM

Why: This unique husband and wife duo began their musical journey last year, with the goal of inspiring audiences internationally. The sound is entirely theirs, but the enchantment will be yours.

Cost: Tickets start at $20


Vintage Fair

When: October 4, 2014, from 9:00AM to 3:00PM

Why: Taking place on the museum grounds at 110 W. Fremont, this is a fun event for the whole family. Local vendors will be offering antiques, handmade goods, and more. The event is sponsored by the Museum and Lucky Junk Shop. Demonstrations and tutorials on creating vintage items will also be available on site. Take a walk down memory lane, explore history, and learn to make something fun yourself. When you’re hungry, pop over to the farmer’s market before it ends for the year.
