Just because the summer is over and we're still a couple months away from the holiday season does not mean that we have to retreat to our homes quite yet, or at all. The town of Okotoks is ripe with community events that will keep you, your family, and visitors entertained without the slightest hint of post-summer depression settling in. Each month our Okotoks real estate team makes recommendations to prospective home buyers (potentially soon be new to town) that happen upon our blog. Today, we present to you some "something for everyone" events worth checking out over the first official month of autumn.
October Events in Okotoks:
1. Live Music & Silent Film Night @ Rotary Performing Arts Centre (October 19, 8-10PM)
This event is an absolute can't miss for fans of the roaring 20's and the silent films that graced the screen of its time. Critically acclaimed silent films will be presented amidst a backdrop of original live scores courtesy of famed composer/pianist Robert Bruce. To learn more about this exquisite ode of music, art, and film visit the event site.
2. Yuk Yuk's Stand-Up Comedy @ Rotary Performing Arts Centre (October 5, 8PM)
Once again we send you to the RPAC as the famed Yuk Yuk's Comedy Tour makes its way into Okotoks to make our bellies hurt from laughter. Up to bat on stage will be Jasen Fredrickson who is known for his happy-go-lucky act that wonderfully borders on absurd. The show also features Ian Wallace, a pop culture comedian that comes armed with decades of wisecracks and sarcastic quips. What better way to join the community than by laughing together in unison?
3. Okotoks Garden Club @ Okotoks Public Library (October 7, 6:30-8:15 PM)
Come meet and greet the gardening enthusiasts of the community by checking out the Okotoks Garden Club's harvest themed evening. Topics addressed at this month's event not only include the usual recipe sharing (which families back at home love to taste test!) it will also dive into the specifics of optimum canning, fermentation, blanching, herb drying.
4. Ghost Walk @ Okotoks Museum (October 28, 6-9:30 PM)
While we plan on writing an entire Okotoks Halloween Events article midway thought the month of October we thought we'd include this one eerie fun event for those that want to get the traditionally-on-the-31st activities started a little early. Beginning on the 28th of October will be the 3rd annual Okotoks Ghost Walk tour. The tour is hosted by the Okotoks Museum & Archives in conjunction with the District Historical Society. This is a great way to meet the town, learn about its history, while being served a healthy dose of goosebumps along with it.
If you happened to come across this article and you are considering a move to the Okotoks region we welcome you to contact our Okotoks real estate team anytime. We look forward to having you join us, and the rest of the community, at one of these October events.
