A moveable feast: The top 10 Southern events for foodies in September

As summer officially ends and temperatures cool down, the food scene in the South actually continues to heat up with a wide assortment of gatherings for foodies and beverage fans in September. We looked at a buffet of events around the South and found the best, arranging them according to their dates to help you plan your road trip; all that's left is for you to get out there and indulge in a new season of Southern culinary arts.

North Carolina Apple Festival
