September is a month with a few really big, really fun events—namely, Bumbershoot and the Washington State Fair. Bumbershoot fills Labor Day weekend with concerts and art and performances galore, while the Washington State Fair dominates the middle two weeks of September with more concerts, animals, fair food and rides! If large-scale happenings aren’t your cup of tea, read on for an at-a-glance listing with plenty of shows, concerts, headliners and more.
