Rockin’ October: Here’s What To Get Up To In The Month Of Better Weather

Cheese fests to trance parties, October’s got more than Halloween up its sleeve

Ring in October with these must-dos and first tries. Sleepover with pups at the annual TEARS slumber party, indulge in some of the finest cheeses at a festival dedicated to the good stuff in Milnerton and more this month.

SLUMBER PUPPY PARTY
Stay over at TEARS Animal Rescue with a pup and help raise funds and awareness for shelter animals at this unique slumber party from 27 to 28 October 2018. Once you’ve secured your ticket, you’ll be assigned to an enclosure with its own goal and campaign, for which you’ll be raising funds. Each attendee is encouraged to strive towards a minimum goal of R1500, and TEARS will assist with media and resources to help spread the word for each campaign.
Price: R200pp

LIVE IT UP IN LANGA
Experience the vibrant township of Langa at the ninth annual edition of the Rocktober entertainment festival taking place at Maragana Park from 7 to 8 October 2018. Expect a major line-up of entertainment, from a live stage with artists such as dance and electronic artist Xoli M and gqom DJ Tman, comedians, food from local vendors and something for fashionistas too.  
Price: R100pp–R1500pp  

SAY CHEESE
In its third year running, the Artisanal Cheese Fair is taking place at the Italian Club of Cape Town in Milnerton from 6 to 7 October 2018. Although the festival focuses on local and imported cheeses, you’ll also be able to indulge in olives, breads, wines, beers, charcuterie, preserves and more. There’ll be over 40 stalls, as well as a bar and restaurant area, kids entertainment and a chefs demo area with free demos by well-known chefs, foodies and cheesemakers at this cheesy fair.
Price: R55pp–R95pp

GUN RUN FUN
The Mother City gears up to host the horde of runners and walkers participating in the 2018 Gun Run, which starts in Green Point on 14 October 2018. Now in its 26th year, the annual athletic event offers runners a choice of participating in the 21km half marathon, the 10km race or the 5km fun run. T-shirts are available for R215 each and R10 from each sale will go to the Amy Foundation, a non-profit organisation offering programmes to develop and empower youth. Run for change with this initiative-driven run.  
Price: Entry fees range between free and R225pp and can be found on the entry form.

STOMP INTO SUMMER
The annual Organik Gaian Dream outdoor trance party provides the perfect space for trance-lovers to release their worries and shrug off their stress. Set to transform the Dreamscape venue just outside of Caledon into a pretty playground from 19 to 21 October 2018, the three-day shindig takes place in the woods where the party knows no limits. Enjoy thumping progressive and psytrance beats from international acts such as Avalon and Terrafractyl at this trance paradise.

SPOOKY SCREENINGS
Cinephiles and lovers of thrillers, horrors and gory films are in for a treat when the SA Horrorfest flickers onto screens at the iconic Labia Theatre from 25 October to 2 November 2018. To present this 10-day film festival, the curators delve deep to find and screen the rarest and most terrifying flicks – the kind that promises to leave your nerves shattered.
