A month by any other name

In Germany they have October Fest, a festival celebrating beer drinking. And around the world people have appropriated October for their own festivals.

Below is a list of festivals I though you could have for October. Some are real, and others just sound interesting.

(Octoberfest is actually the 16 days leading up to the first Sunday in October. But don’t let that get in the way of all the people that want to have a month long festival.)
