The Scene: Since 1971, Bumbershoot has been entertaining the Northwest every Labor Day Weekend. Come for the music and stay for the comedy, dance, spoken word, lectures, and art.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the editor-in-chief's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.

    Love it! I’m planning a weekend trip in Oct. Have any suggestions for a family friendly music fest in mid Oct.? I’m trying to find a place that won’t be too cold during the day.

    Best fest in October with warm weather would be DeLuna Fest on Pensacola Beach in Florida.
