Las Vegas October 2017 Guide

Las Vegas shows, events & concerts slow in October until Halloween

Average temperature low and high: 65°- 82°

As October sets in, the strip starts to slow down to a more comfortable pace. It's a great time to find hotel deals & flight packages for a relaxing getaway, but be prepared to party in true Vegas style come late October. Just a couple things to keep in mind before you book your trip—hotels will be cheaper, thanks to the end of the summer rush, but there is a good chance that a lot of pools will be closed, especially near the end of the month. Look for shorter lines in the clubs and VIP bottle deals… until Halloween that is.

Halloween in Las Vegas 2017

As the country's capital of dressing scandalously and acting devilishly the other 364 days each year, Halloween in Vegas is some seriously next-level entertainment. You'll be able to party with some of the sexiest ghouls and goblins. World-famous EDM DJs are nomally announced in early September.

For more spooky events, you can check out Fright Dome at Circus Circus. In addition to the rides and attractions that are part of their Adventuredome theme park, revelers will also be able to scream their way through six haunted houses. Fright Dome will be open from October 7th-31st. Other resorts that will be getting into the scary spirit will be the LINQ, where Zombies will be taking over the High Roller (10/31) and Mandalay Bay, where the Shark Reef Aquarium will introduce guests to their dark and eerie Haunted Ree.

Shows, Events & Concerts in October 2017

Singer, actress, and global phenom Jennifer Lopez kicks off October with three performances of her immensely popular show, “All I Have,” at Planet Hollywood.
Mirage’s Terry Fator Theater features “Whose Line Is It, Anyway?” regular and variety show host Wayne Brady (10/06/2017) and Blue Collar Comedy standup legend Ron White (10/20-21/2017).

Things To Do in Las Vegas in October

  • Secret Gardens: Get some inspiration for your Halloween cat costume at Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden at The Mirage. Since it's an outdoor exhibit, October normally has the perfect weather to visit the white lions and tigers, black panthers, exotic birds, and bottlenose dolphins on display. If you are lucky, you will get a chance to meet Siegfried Fischbacher, who visits the habitat often to greet guests and snap photos with them.
  • The Red Bull Air Race World Championship Show: Flying high on adrenaline (and presumably lots of Red Bull) on October 14th and 15th in the skies over the Las Vegas Speedway. Some of the world's best pilots will battle it out in the air, navigating 82 feet high pylons at speeds of up to 230 mph.
  • ATVs: If riding around the desert to see the sights is more your speed, you might want go try out an ATV tour. Enjoy the adrenaline of riding the sand dunes and navigating canyon trails.

Free Things To Do in October

  • Walk the Strip: The weather is perfect to Stroll the Strip: If your luck just ran out at the tables or you need to burn some calories from the buffet, one of the best ways to enjoy Vegas for free is to walk up and down the Strip and visit the hotels. Make sure to use our interactive Las Vegas Strip Map for walk times, finding restaurants, bars and activities. Consider starting at Aria and tour the city center complex. Next, wander over across Harmon Blvd to see the opulent Cosmopolitan resort and try a pick-up game of pool on the third floor. Finally, get a good spot in front of the Bellagio fountains and wait for the next interval of the water show, then go inside to see the autumnal flower display at the conservatory and botanical gardens.
  • "First Friday" Las Vegas, Downtown: Another great free event is called First Friday. The community initiative is a downtown art and food festival taking place primarily within the Art District (formerly called 21b). Live music, dancing, and local food trucks gather at this monthly event of local culture. October's event will be held on the evening of Friday October 6, from 6-10pm.
  • Free Drinks in Las Vegas: Las Vegas is not an easy place to find cheap drinks. Lucky for you, LavishVegas works with groups that hold special events that include free drinks and open bars at some of the hottest clubs and bars on the strip. These events are added without much notice, so check our bar page before and during your visit. Login with your Facebook account to review the special offers.
