What’s Happening in Taipei: September Events

Taipei September Events Calendar

Find out what’s going on around Taipei this September with this events guide.

Dear Taipei,

This September is looking to be quite a rainy one, but don’t let that stop you from heading outside and enjoying the month! There’s a bunch of events on around the city, and it would be a shame to let a bit of rain (or a lot…) get in the way!

As usual, I’ve written about 5 highlights in Taipei’s events calendar in my article for TravelogTaipei this September. Be sure to check it out as it’ll go through more info about these events!

I’ve made a calendar of 20 great September events below. You’ll see my top picks (the ones I mentioned in Travelog) are indicated with event banners. Let me know if you know of any others!
