California fairs and festivals in
September provide an atmosphere like
summer. The weather is warm, the skies
are sunny but the crowds often have died
down as California beach and inland
tourists have gone back to work or
school. September provides an
ideal time to explore and attend fairs
and festivals held throughout the state.
From small local events to large county
fairs with thousands in attendance,
you'll find free admission to many
functions, while most charge an
affordable cost that will allow you to
attend more than one event during the
month of September. Oktoberfests that
are launched in September and run
through October can easily be included
in the category of food festivals.
California German celebrations include
beer, liquor drinks and German style
foods such as wienerschnitzel,
sauerkraut and apple strudel. On the California food circuit,
September brings some great harvests of locally-grown crops such as
almonds, eggplant, grapes, tomatoes, walnuts, zucchinis and even tofu!
While the number tourist destinations in the US include cities such as
Los Angeles, September festivals and fairs celebrate the country,
California's great cultural destination where agriculture and
agro-tourism are all the rage. Events such as Gold Country Fair in
Auburn which includes one of the longest-running and wealthiest gold
mines in the USA plus Los Angeles County Fair, where, believe-it-or-not,
there actually is produce and livestock.
L.A. County Fair ads in recent years have included
city-grown moms and children discussing the simplicity of such things as
a hotdog on a stick, called a corn dog. Corny in nature, the simple TV
ads appeal to families and children who never step off the beach to see
where food comes from. From the big city fair with horse racing to the
small town affair with parades and foods, you'll find yourself in Hog
Heaven attending the variety of festivals and fairs offered each year in
California's golden season, September.
