  • The latest Edmonton Film Society series continues this month with its theme of intrigue and suspense. Check out their weekly line-up here.
  • Every Wednesday until the end of November, enjoy a free noon hour musical concert at McDougall United Church (10025 101 Street).
  • The Edmonton Corn Maze is open every day until the middle of the month, fun for all ages. For those interested in something less tame, look for the Farm of Fear event offered at the end of October.
  • The Edmonton International Lit Festival runs October 16-19.
  • Need an excuse to check out some of the city’s art collections? The Fall Gallery Walk may be just the event you need to get you there, on October 18 & 19.

  • The Art Gallery of Alberta offers a free lecture once a month in the Atrium in Enterprise Square. This month’s session is scheduled for October 30.
  • There’s tons of great theatre around the city, but if you’re looking for something frightening, look no further than Northern Light Theatre’s annual Urban Tales, October 31 – November 1 (it’s also being webcast live if you can’t make it down to the Third Space).
