September is a fabulous month for outdoor festivals on the Monterey Peninsula. September is one of our favorite months because we have summertime temperatures, lots of sunshine, and plenty of festival food and drinks we can indulge in. Here are our top three local September events and festivals around the Monterey Peninsula:
1. Labor Day Parade and Festival in Marina
Marina is a wonderful city and they are known for their Labor Day Parade and Festival. If you missed it this year, be sure to attend next Labor Day, for it’s always a fun place to celebrate with friends and family.
2. Festa Italia
This year, the Festa Italia will be held on Sept. 8 - 10. 2017 marks the 84th year of this festival, which is quite amazing! You’ll find delicious Italian food, entertainment, and bocce ball tournaments at the Custom House Plaza throughout the weekend.
3. Monterey Jazz Festival
September 15 - 17 marks the 60th year of this world-famous festival. World-class jazz musicians and singers grace our local stages at the Monterey Fairgrounds during this epic 3-day festival. If you cannot make it to the festival, a lot of locals will hang out in the Monterey Hyatt Regency’s lobby to see these performers jam together after hours.
If you attend any of these three festivals, we might see you there. Individuals within the team of Robert’s Collision & Repair greatly enjoy attending these events, and we love connecting with our neighbors and friends who live in Salinas, Marina, Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Monterey, Seaside, Big Sur, Moss Landing, and beyond.
