October 2013 events calendar for things to do in Chicago
Plan your October in Chicago with our events calendar of the best activities, including free things to do, festivals and picks from theater, the arts and music.
With the unseasonably cool summer behind us, it should be easy to embrace fall this year. October's events calendar offers lots of things to do and a full concert lineup. Chicago Ideas Week brings a number of panels with speaking-circuit regulars as Macolm Gladwell, Dan Savage and the Winkelvoss twins. Check out the big names in comedy coming to town, including Daily Show correspondent John Oliver and Dr. Huxtable himself, Bill Cosby. Find a great spot to cheer on your fit friends running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon or scream your head off at one of the many area haunted houses this Halloween.
