Get Excited For Fall

Things To Do In September

September is the start of a new season. Fall brings new tastes, new experiences, and new adventures. Here is a list of things to get excited about for fall. 


Celebrate Labor Day
Enjoy the last weekend wearing white. Throw a goodbye to the summer party and enjoy the last weekend of summer. 

Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival

Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival is held from August 29th to September 2nd every year. Watch the hot air balloons, visit the festival, see the shows, watch the fireworks, and more.

Kentucky Bourbon Festival

Kentucky has been the bourbon capital of the world since 1776! This festival is held in Bardstown every September. This year it will be from September 16th till September 19th. Try more than 30 flavors and pick your favorite. 

Braemar Gathering

Watch as teams compete in the tug of war teams games in Scotland on the first Saturday of September. This tradition dates back 200 years. People from all around come to the small Scottish village of Braemar.

Visit the fair or the flea market

Going to the fair is so much fun! Take a look at your local fair and flea market schedule and plan for the month ahead. Get the family together for a day full of fun! Head to the fair to feast and play or visit the flea market to score some treasures.

Enjoy the Outdoors/ Nature

Take a camping trip

September is the best month to camp, not too hot and not too cold. Go off the grid for the weekend and get ready for the new season ahead. 

Enjoy the Outdoors
Bike, hike, walk, do whatever you love outdoors! Enjoy the cool days of September as we approach the cold weather. 


One of the best parts about fall is foliage. Take a trip to your State Park and watch how the change of season affects nature. From the end of September to the beginning of October is the perfect time to see the leaves change. 

Get ready for the season ahead

Prep for going back to school

If you have kids, prepare for the school year. Get new lunch boxes, new stationery, and all that good stuff. Get your kids excited about seeing their friends again. 

Get ready for football season

September is the start of football season. Stock the house with some beer and chips. Throw a football in your backyard to get ready for the season ahead. 

Plan your Halloween Costume

You might think it’s early but we think it’s never too early to think about your Halloween costume. 

Tastes of Fall

Pumpkin Latte

Enjoy pumpkin lattes. Better yet learn how to make one at home. 

Apple picking

It’s the season of apple picking. Make it a tradition and enjoy apple picking with the family annually. There are plenty of recipes to try with the fresh apples you picked. If you love pie bake an apple pie, if you love drinks make a hot apple cider! 

Make jam and preserves

As summer fruit starts to disappear, make your own jam to use for the upcoming cold months ahead.
