Summer!? But it’s almost September.
Sure, Labor Day Weekend may signal the end of summer for most – but in L.A., the fun is just beginning! Thanks to our warm, sunny days all year long, September boasts plenty of reasons for you to escape to L.A. and squeeze every last bit of summer out of 2019. From outdoor concerts and movies to beaches and fiestas, it’s the perfect time to plan your dream L.A. vacation. Here are our top picks for things to do on Labor Day Weekend and beyond in Los Angeles.
If you’re into outdoor shows – whether it’s movies or music – the L.A. summertime schedule is just heating up, with no signs of slowing down as September rolls around. We don’t call it an endless summer for nothing!
When you think of L.A., the first thing that comes to your mind may be movie magic. So, why not combine Hollywood’s love of cinema with the beautiful warm weather and catch an outdoor movie? You can find screenings all cross the city, whether it be a rooftop bar, park, or even a cemetery. And no matter your taste in movies – from your go-to classics to modern films to everyone’s cult favorites – there’s definitely something for everyone. Gather your friends or spend a romantic September night under the stars watching one of your favorite flicks.
And when it comes to outdoor music venues, Los Angeles takes the cake! The City of Angeles offers two unforgettable, unmatchable spots to catch an outdoor show at the end of summer: The Hollywood Bowl and The Greek Theatre.
The Hollywood Bowl often tops everyone’s lists as one of the best outdoor live music venues in America. Located in the Hollywood Hills, this is a must visit for any avid concert goer. From Barry Manilow to Heart to Gladys Knight, you won’t regret spending a warm September night under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl. Your last chance to catch live music at this Hollywood hotspot is September 14th, so let us book your tickets now!
The Greek Theatre is another iconic venue in L.A. that hosts all the biggest entertainment acts, and Labor Day Weekend, Ringo Starr will appear as the headliner. Other big names coming in September include Cake and Maren Morris. Don’t miss your chance to watch a show at this world-renown venue – the last show of the summer is September 15th!
Thanks to the gorgeous weather, our city’s festivals, fairs, and fiestas are still going strong all the way through September. If you’re looking for a spectacular Labor Day Weekend, filled with art, music, and more, then look no further than these famously fabulous L.A. events.
If fried food is your thing, then look no further than the L.A. County Fair, which lasts from August 20th through Sept 22nd. Eat lip-smacking fried foods – including deep-fried hot sauce, deep-fried pizza, and yes, deep-fried butter! Headed out for date night? Take a spin on the carousel and Ferris wheel or win your date a prize at a game booth. And if you’re a music lover, the L.A. County Fair has plenty of music to choose from. This year’s lineup includes the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Pitbull, and Chicago. The fair is located in Pomona, so let A Better Life Concierge arrange for transportation and lodging that’s convenient and headache-free!
If you’re looking for a more local vibe on Labor Day Weekend, check out the Made in L.A. Music and Arts Festival. This two-day block party is hosted by Golden Road Brewing, and as the name suggests, it features some of the city’s best local art, music, food, and beer. Plus, this year’s live performances include the well-known Cold War Kids and Phantom Planet. Who doesn’t want to spend the day soaking up local beats and brews!?
Another awesome only-in-L.A. event is Fiesta Hermosa, which happens Labor Day Weekend in downtown Hermosa Beach. This annual event is the largest arts and crafts fair in Southern California, with painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, and sculptors all showcasing their work. In addition to all the art your heart desires, you’ll also find a food court and a beer and wine garden, along with a wide array of live music – alternative, reggae, classic rock, blues, and more. Looking for a kid-friendly weekend? Fiesta Hermosa is perfect for the entire family, with activities such as a carnival, petting zoo, and pony rides.
You can’t talk about stretching out your summer fun without mentioning one of L.A.’s most attractive features: it’s breathtaking beaches!
