September may signal the end of summertime, but you’d never know it with this month’s packed schedule of major events. Start wrapping up your summer playlist and get in one last visit to one of L.A.’s best beaches while the water’s still, relatively speaking, warm. If you’d rather skip town, take advantage of the long Labor Day weekend to squeeze in a weekend getaway. But don’t worry, there’s no shortage of food fests, street fairs and other fun festivals in L.A. in our September events calendar.

This year’s simmersive haunted house, Awake, is a literal nightmare, taking place in a dreamworld made incarnate. It’s also a much longer show, at 75 minutes, than previous runs. Groups of 25 at a time will be led through a series of surreal rooms, each one its own multi-sensory horror. We’re also told there may be some “intimate encounters,” which may allude to the one-on-one scenes Creep shows typically contain in which lucky guests are secreted away from their group by performers.

For dinner and a movie, all in one, just follow the food trucks. During the summer and fall, Street Food Cinema throws together a series of mostly outdoor parties that include screenings of some of our favorite movies, paired with an assortment of gourmet food trucks and even a live music performance from a cool local band. The screenings are held in venues across L.A., and  alternate from week to week, so make sure to check the schedule. Some of the outdoor venues are dog-friendly, allowing you to bring your four-legged cinema lover along. New this year are two overnight camping events that extend the movie screening into a fun summer camp experience for grown-ups.
