About September Holidays

September begins with the big Labor Day holiday early in the month. As September arrives, summer vacations are in the rearview mirror. We look forward to indoor activities and fall events. September national holidays, international holidays, and special days fill our calendar this month. If you prepare the monthly calendar for your work, school, or organization, your challenge is to determine what holidays to feature each day. There are hundreds to choose from. There are just too many to post on your monthly calendar. You can select among September National holidays, daily world holidays, fun, quirky, and uniquely special days.

September Weekly Events

Special Events of Note

September and early October brings the last of the outdoor festivals and events. They center around the apple harvest and of course pumpkins! Perhaps the most exciting is the Fall Pumpkins Weigh-offs. Often included in a fall festival, pumpkin weigh-offs put pumpkins on display. You can almost hear the thud as pumpkins, often weighing over a ton, are placed on the scales.
