Best Palm Beach County Events in October

October 1, 2018

As the year winds down, the events are stacking up!  There’s so much to do in our local Palm Beach County, it’s hard to pick my favorites, but here they are:


Spa and Wellness Month – For the entire month of October, Palm Beach county’s award-winning spas and wellness centers will offer exclusive and limited-time prices. Choose from massages, facials, group yoga classes, pink smoothies and more – and it’s all for a great cause! In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every participating business will donate a portion of its proceeds to the Palm Beach County chapter of the American Cancer Society. New this year are three new fitness activities: a fitness crawl through downtown West Palm Beach, bootcamp classes at FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches, and District Fit, a three-day festival featuring glow yoga, fun runs, and a vegan-inspired dinner.

Oktoberfest – The American German Club of The Palm Beaches hosts Oktoberfest on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the second and third weekends of October starting October 12. Enjoy authentic German meals, including authentic bratwurst and schnitzel, while sipping imported beers and 30 different types of liquor. Live entertainment from original Oktoberfest bands direct from Germany will also accompany arts and crafts, carnival games, folk dancing, and vendor displays.  Learn more here:


Jupiter Fall Fest – We may not have turning leaves, but everyone knows nothing beats fall in Florida!
