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.

 

The 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.
