3 Can’t-Miss September Events: Film, Fashion and Fermentation
With summer coming to a close and school schedules just around the corner, cooler nights might have you longing for those not-so-distant memories of long summer days.
Whether you welcome autumn with open arms or try to resist the end of summer, there are three events this September that you won’t want to miss. Here’s a hint: They include film, fashion and lots of beer.
Telluride Film Festival
Where: Telluride, Colorado
When: September 1–4, 2017
Every Labor Day weekend, Telluride teems with film enthusiasts in town for the Telluride Film Festival. This event celebrates the best in film — although it’s a local event, the contributors and attendees are global.
While the films are memorable in their own right, there are few film festivals that offer scenery like Telluride: mountain landscapes, starry night skies and beautiful Colorado weather.
Pro travel tip: Purchase a Telluride Film Festival Pass to get the best chance of catching your top screenings. Without a pass, you run the risk of missing out on some of the films on your must-see list.
New York Fashion Week
When and where:
- September 7–14, 2017; New York City
- September 15–19, 2017; London
- September 20–26, 2017; Milan
- September 26–October 3, 2017; Paris
No matter your September schedule, there’s a Fashion Week event that you can squeeze in. Every year, the world’s most renowned and up-and-coming designers showcase the latest trends at Fashion Week.
Expect to be among the most fashion-forward individuals in the world, and pick up a few style tips to take home with you.
Pro travel tip: Find out how to get tickets for Fashion Week shows, and then book a private flight to arrive in style to the world’s most stylish events.
Where: Munich, Germany
When: September 16–October 3, 2017
Contrary to popular belief, one of the world’s most famous events doesn’t happen during the month of its namesake. Oktoberfest actually begins in September and lasts a few weeks through the beginning of October.
This beer-drinker’s paradise kicks off with a parade and the tapping of the first Oktoberfest beer barrel by the mayor of Munich. Expect to see your share of costumes, performances and — of course — lots and lots of beer.
Pro travel tip: If you can’t make it all the way to Germany, Denver’s own Oktoberfest spans two weekends in September. It’s not quite the same, but it’s much more accessible!
