August is the month in California where you wouldn't have to have events, but every place worth visiting would still be jamming. Californians love to get out and be active in the month of August, typically filled with sunshine every day and hardly ever any rain. This is the month where special events such as fairs, rodeos and Renaissance all are hosted in cities throughout the state. Burning Man is one of the best-known events for its creative bend. People bring outfits and art displays that are totally outrageous and make statements. It's held in the hot desert, and expect it to get even hotter when the Burnin Man effigy is torched. Other events include music outdoors, food fairs, fishing derbies, and car shows, to name a few things you might enjoy. Many community concerts are held on village lawns and are hosted free of charge.
