No, that’s not a typo. The thing is, October in Ogden is so uniquely different that it merits it’s own brand: Ogtober.
It all ramps up to the spooks and ghouls thing toward the end of the month...and does so with enthusiasm...but we’ll get to that in a bit.
Ogtober gets underway with the First Friday Art Stroll along with the 25th Street Car Show on October 1st. Wherever you start your stroll, be sure to land at The Monarch for open studio night, and watch The Banyan Collective as they record/broadcast Van Sessions with Josaliegh Pollett at 7:00 p.m., followed by Fur Foxen at 8:00.
The Monarch puts art stollers in the heart of a lot of great public art in Ogden. Ogtober's First Friday Art Stroll is your last chance to check out Lauren and James Argo's "PARAdbOXES" installation at Platforms.
Farmer’s Market Ogden runs an extended Fall Market every Saturday of the month on the 300 block of Historic 25th Street through October 23rd. This summer heat has made for some fantastic late-season, full-of-flavor harvests of locally grown fruits and vegetables, and arts and crafts vendors have continued to increase virtually every week. The last two Markets are probably the ones you don’t want to miss.
Whether you're a believer or die-hard skeptic, Ogtober is the perfect time to join Story Tours for an Ogden Ghost Tour. With a couple of different options for ghost walks as well as a bus tour, it won't just be the cooler temperatures that are causing those goosebumps.
Those familiar with Peery’s Egyptian Theater know that it’s a spectacle in and of itself and worth a visit anytime. However, in Ogtober, it will host screenings of some amazing films in its one-of-a-kind setting.
On October 29 and 30, screenings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” will play to sold-out audiences. Pre-show entertainment is provided as well as “prop bags” for the full “Rocky Horror” experience. Costumes are highly encouraged and advance ticket purchase is pretty much required for this popular event.
Ogden breweries even catch the Ogtober fever. Looking to try an excellent seasonal beer? Local brews are available from UTOG Brewing Company, Talisman Brewing Company and Roosters Brewing Co., or check out Slackwater Pub and Pizzeria to find some pumpkin and harvest-style beer.
Whatever your inclinations are for Ogtober, be sure to have a spooktacular time!
