CNY Events This September Weekend

Which CNY events will fill your weekend? There is plenty of comedy, festivals, sporting events and a wide variety of music.

Hello, September. Hello, new school year. Hello, misconceptions about when the end of summer is. (The last day is Sept. 21, but we can keep that a secret between you, me and every 2016 calendar.) The CNY events keep on coming and will turn frowns upside down.

Share a good chuckle about everyone’s panic about the end of summer as they are calmed by their artificially-flavored pumpkin spice whatevs as you go to a comedy show, attend an autumnal festival or an Irish one, run a race for charity or watch people give it their all at sporting events (so you don’t have to).

It’s still beautiful and easy to travel. Put on some good music and coast along. Enjoy yourselves.
