September is here. I like to think of it as the awkward month of the year. It’s still as warm, or warmer than summer has been, but you’re ready for the leaves to change and fall to begin.
The best part about September is making the weekends count like summer is still here. York County has you covered in that department.
Here’s 16 of the best events happening in York County this month:
- Fiddle ‘n Pig Shindig: Head out to the Greenway for a star-studded line up of live music, food trucks, and a bier garden with more than 40 beers to taste. If you plan early, you can even stay the night. Camp out under the stars for a great family memory.
