The weather's changing, the "Trick or Tweet" content ideas are being pitched (well, at least in our office) — October is here! As you pitch and plan your own content for the month, here are some key dates to keep in mind.

Events happening around the world this October: 

#WorldAnimalDay, October 4

#YomKippur, October 8

#WorldFoodDay, October 16

#InternationalEndPovertyDay, October 17

#Diwali, October 27

#Halloween, October 31

Events happening in the US:

This month is home to two delicious food days: #NationalTacoDay, October 4 and #NationalPastaDay, October 17. Whether you're using a Twitter Poll to discover the 'best' type of pasta or sharing a team picture from a taco truck outing, these are great opportunities to have fun with your followers and showcase your brand's personality.

Events happening in Europe:

In Europe, the arts will take center stage as the #BFIFilmFestival runs in London, October 2 - 13 and #FIAC (International Contemporary Art Fair) takes place in Paris, October 17 - 20.

Want to tap into these conversations and audiences? Why not highlight some art around your office? Or 'premiere' a video of your own? As with any event on Twitter, there are more ways than one to be part of what's happening.

Events happening in the Middle East:

GITEX Technology Week (#GITEX2019) will kick off the month in Dubai, October 6 - 10. Follow the hashtag to keep up with coverage, and remember — even if you aren't attending an event in person, you can still reach its audience through event targeting. Mid-month, Tweets will be sweet for #NationalDessertDay, October 14. 

Speaking of sweets, here are some creative #Halloween Tweets for a little October inspiration. Looking for more? Check out the dos and don'ts of Halloween hashtags.
