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.
