October 2010 Events in Seattle: Music, Film, Coffee, and Hogwarts

Events — By Michelle Schusterman on October 1, 2010 at 12:07 am

Summer is undeniably the festival season of Seattle, but the city still has plenty to offer when the weather cools and the leaves start to turn. Looking to get out? We’ve got jazz, films, caffeine and a Potterhead extravaganza coming up in October.

Earshot Jazz Festival

Oct. 15th-Nov. 7th

A celebration of jazz artists both from Seattle and abroad, Earshot takes place at over 50 venues around the city for over three weeks. It’s enough to keep any jazzer happy, with James Carter, John Medeski and the Heaven on Earth Band, The Kora Band, and a reading by American Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky accompanied by musicians Marc Seales and Paul Gabrielson to name a few.

Lesbian and Gay Film Festival

Oct. 15th-24th

Join over 10,000 attendees for viewing indie films and major motion pictures at the largest festival of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. This event takes place at several various venues around the city, and ticket prices vary depending on the film and/or gala.

Coffee Fest
Oct. 29th-31st

I know what you’re thinking – isn’t every day Coffee Fest Day in Seattle? It’s true. But the New World Latte Art Championships? Not a regular occurrence. This event is packed with workshops and classes on everything related to coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, macchiatos… you name it.

Harry Potter Exhibition
Oct. 23rd-Jan. 30th

Heaven for HP dorks (and I proudly include myself in that category). Seattle’s Pacific Science Center is the last stop on this tour, and features artifacts and sets from the popular movies, including a few new items from the final two that have yet to be released, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
