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

Wynnderland Encore Halloween 2016

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... Omnia with world-famous EDM DJ Calvin Harris, Chris Brown singing live at Drai's, or Lil Jon behind the decks at at Surrender.

Fright Dome
Fright Dome

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.

Things To Do in Las Vegas in October 2017

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 will be flying high on adrenaline (and presumably lots of Red Bull) on October 15th and 16th 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.

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 Events & Things To Do in October

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 7th, 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. 

Shows, Events & Concerts in October

MGM's new T-Mobile arena will be hosting a wide array of events in October for tourists' tastes. Sports fans can take in a preseason NBA game (10/13/16 or 10/15/16) or hockey game (10/7/16 or 10/8/16), or if music is more your style, the new arena will be host to some of the biggest names in October, including the Rolling Stones (10/19/16) and Kanye West (10/29/16). Before the show, indulge in a waffle a sandwich (Brexie's) or some sushi (Sake Rok) at the new outdoor dining and entertainment attraction The Park.

Further down the Strip at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a couple of musical heavyweights will be continuing their Vegas residencies. Celine Dion will be showing off her vocal skills from October 8th. Elton John will also be at the Colosseum, belting out his hits during his "Million Dollar Piano Show, Oct 12th- 31st.

Fright Dome
Britney Spears - Piece of Me

Britney Spears also has one of the hottest shows on the Strip right now. Through electric dance moves, lighting features, and her familiar #1 hits, this is one show that you not want to miss. Britney's "Piece of Me" show runs at the AXIS theatre at Planet Hollywood October 21-29.

A few other residency shows that will have you reminiscing about your younger years are Boyz 2 Men (The Mirage, Oct. 7th-9th, 14th-16th and 21st-23rd) and Billy Idol (House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, Oct 12th-22nd). Plan on singing along, having a few drinks, and trying your luck at the tables once the show lets out.
