September is here! This year, Autumn officially starts on September 22, so there's no time to waste in breaking out the pumpkin spice candles and fall decor! Although there is much to enjoy within the comforts of your home, the festivities outside the home are in abundance this time of year and must be known! Therefore, I will handpick upcoming events within surrounding areas for the remainder of the year each month. I hope this will give you something to get excited about, look forward to, and provide memories to be made with your loved ones.
Primavera Sound (music festival) (Los Angeles, CA) Sept. 16th-18th
There's nothing like the sweet sound of music to serenade your feet right out that front door! The Primavera Sound Music Festival started in Barcelona and has found its way to the States to share the inspiration with upbeat and lively tunes! It brings some of the biggest acts across genres such as electronic, hip-hop, indie, alternative, folk, country, and many more! Check out pricing and information here!
Apple Picking (Oak Glen, CA)
Some say apple picking is the key to embracing the Autumn season, and I could not agree more! Apple picking is in its prime season, typically starting around Labor Day through Thanksgiving. There are many orchards to choose from; however, a few of my favorites would have to be located in Oak Glen with its U-Pick farms and seasonal events! Typically 1-2 hour drive from most parts of L.A. and a 30 min.- 1hr drive from areas within the Inland Empire. Not only will you enjoy the sweet aroma of apples and cider during your picking pleasure, but there are petting zoos, enticing bakeries, restaurants, live music, and more to enjoy!

Banana Festival (Port of Hueneme, CA) September 24
Yup, you read that right! Make sure to save the date for the 12th Annual Port of Hueneme Banana Festival! If apples aren't your thing and something "different" is what you're looking for, this could be it!
