Festivals In Pennsylvania – September
Pittsburgh and Southwestern Area

September festivals in Pennsylvania in the Pittsburgh region offer arts and crafts, music fests, car shows and civil war encampments.

Enjoy festivals in state parks, ethnic foods, contests, music, dance and activities for kids.

This is a popular month for festivals in all parts of the state. You’ll find many ideas for a nice day out with your family or spouse on your vacation.

Some of these festivals focus on a specific theme, music or food. If you love potatoes, you’ll want to head to Ebensburg.

It’s best to get an early start at the festivals. You’ll be able to find parking and get a head start on browsing the craft booths before it gets too busy.
