Though September signals the closing of beaches and pools and the return to school, there are so many scheduled events this month in Westchester and the Hudson Valley, it was hard to narrow down our favorites! With fall festivals, film festivals, a book festival, a maker's festival, and non-festivals, the events this month are true standouts.
Extremely corn-y fun awaits in various forms at CORNucopia—perfect for the younger set. For sportier action, catch an equestrian competition and more at the prestigious American Gold Cup. The Chappaqua Children's Book Festival (held in October last year) is a perennial favorite, with opportunities to meet beloved authors and illustrators.
Though Halloween might seem a ways off, trust us: You don’t want to delay snagging your tickets to The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze, which go on sale September 4 (a moment’s delay, and you’ll wind up with a date closer to Thanksgiving). And the New York Renaissance Faire, which runs through the end of September, is worthy of a reminder after being featured in our August GoList.
Beyond these, there are many reasons to keep tabs on our Event Calendar this month, where you’ll find activities that celebrate Labor Day, the return to school, Grandparents Day, and the start of autumn, among other occasions. Stay in the know with our newsletters and check back frequently for updates.
