To Do

Things To Do in September

Labor Day might seem like the cruel end to summer, but don't worry—we made you a list of all the best things going on in NY, LA, and Miami to keep your summer spirits alive. Get your dirndl on for Oktoberfest, get your fancy pants on for New York Fashion Week, and get your yoga pants on for Camp Standard. It might be good to mention that everyone is on tour right now (aka Kanye, Beyoncé, Adele, Drake, and Chance the Rapper). Also, it's not too late to get your buns to Marfa, TX to join our friends at El Cosmico's Trans-Pecos Festival. No summertime sadness allowed, wiener schnitzels.
