10 COMMUNITY EVENTS TO ENJOY THIS SEPTEMBER

 
As the summer ends and people get back from vacations and time away, even back to school for some, it's a great time to start a new activity or become more involved in the community. In case you are short on ideas of how to do this, I have put together a list of 10 great things happing in the Vernon area in September.
 
  1. Learn more about our local artists on September 14th: The Caetani Cultural Centre and the Allan Brooks Nature Centre are excited to present Fresh!AiR artist, Niharika Rajput. Niharika is a visual artist and a creative conservationist based in New Delhi, India. Take a trip up to Allan Brooks Nature Centre to see her 3D sculptures of birds. More info here. 
  2. This time of year is one of the best when it comes to what the local Farmers Markets have to offer. Make sure to get out and visit one of the many that take place in Vernon, Coldstream and Armstrong. It's a great way to enjoy the local harvest and support local growers!
  3. Every weekend in September, come and experience the flavours of fall. Davidson's Orchards offers the Apple Harvest Festival involving orchard tours, You-Pick apples, apple tasting and much more. Full details here.
