We are so excited to see so many September festivals planned for the 2022 season!

Few seasons can compare to fall in the beautiful state of North Carolina. This is also one of the the best seasons of the year for families to find fun, affordable activities close to home. The Triad (and nearby) features a number of September Festivals each year and 2022 looks like it will not disappoint! Bookmark this page (we will continue to add to it) so you never miss an addition or update and be sure to check it each week as submissions continue throughout the season. Plus, we plan to run a similar list in a few weeks to highlight October Festivals in the Triad for 2022!

As new events get announced we will continue to add them, so keep checking this list. In addition, all of these events and more can be found on our community calendar. At the end of September, we will run a new post that features October festivals!

Think we missed one? Email me to have it added to the list.
