Thank you to the University of New Mexico Athletic Department for bringing us this guide to October events in Albuquerque.

If you haven’t been to Lobo football game this season, you’re missing out! Football tickets are now on sale. It’s hard to imagine a more affordable and fun family outing. Head over to the Howl Zone early for some tailgating and make sure to stop by ABQ Mom’s Face Painting station on the east side of the stadium.

Below are some ABQ happenings for the month of October.

Do you know of any other events happening in October? Feel free to add them to our calendar.

Rachel was born and raised in New Mexico and on the neighboring Navajo reservation until she was 14. She then attended high school in Connecticut but returned to New Mexico for college because the mountains will always be home for her. She met her husband while working at Dion’s and she attended UNM. They married in Tijeras, NM in 2014 and welcomed their first son in 2016. Their second son arrived in 2021 during the pandemic. Rachel is currently the community engagement coodinator for ABQ Mom as well as Head Community Leader for the Community & Conversations Group. She also stays home with her two boys, one of which homeschools. If she is not busy organizing playdates and meet-ups for local moms, you can find her at a yoga class, a crafting event, or on a run on one of the various trails surrounding Albuquerque. Since entering motherhood in 2016, Rachel's been most passionate about bringing moms together in a safe space and being the mom friend to others that she wished she had when she was a newly minted Albuquerque mom.
