September Calendar: 2020’s Daily List of Things to Do for Families

september things to do grand rapids

September Things to Do Means Fall Fun!

I can’t be the only one who relishes in the back-to-school season.

Even before I had kids, there’s something about September that excites me – even in this odd time we’re living through – as it ushers in a season of routines and fresh beginnings. (Raise your hand if you make more resolutions in September than January!)

Even while settling into a more standard daily routine, there are still plenty of fun things to do in September to spice up your day.

There are a smattering of Festivals and Fairs still happening, the cooler temperatures make for ideal hiking weather, and of course, there’s all the Apple and Pumpkin picking you can get your hands on.

And once October hits, it’s time for all things Halloween in Grand Rapids – even if we’re not quite sure what that will look like this year.

Use this Daily Calendar of September Events to find the latest family happenings and events that are going on near you.
