Helping you make the most of what sets Tennessee apart
Summer will soon be over, and refreshingly cool, crisp autumn breezes are just around the corner. As Tennesseans finally begin to enjoy welcome relief from sweltering, humid summer afternoons, communities across the state are celebrating the moderating of temperatures with entertaining varieties of festivals, fairs and other events.
Bluegrass concerts, county fairs, car shows and everything in between highlight a full slate of September happenings. Because there’s so much going in all corners of the Volunteer State this time of year, it’s a safe be that any given weekend is chock-full of good times, and each is just a short jaunt from your home.
We’ve included a sampling of events in West, Middle and East Tennessee to help get you started in planning your quick autumn getaway.

And don’t forget your local county fair: A comprehensive rundown of them and other farm-related fun events can be found at www.picktnproducts.org.
This month, we encourage you to find a festival near you and celebrate the local color of your hometown. The weather is beautiful this time of year, and there’s lots to explore and discover across our great state.
