Oct 3 2012

by Whitney Long

Fall has arrived and festival season here in the south is full-tilt! The temps are dropping – ever so slightly – and the bugs seem to be in hiding – at least temporarily – so it’s a great time to enjoy some of the regional events that are happening all across the south. From county fairs to food festivals to music, movies and the arts, there is no shortage of delightful, delectable and educational events going on throughout our region. The Southern Coterie selected some of our top “must-attend” events but don’t stop with this list! For even more ideas for fall fun, check out our events calendar on
