September is here and is proving to be a bit on the frigid side. If you’re willing to stick it out in the less-than-ideal conditions this weekend, there are a few more outdoor events to consider.

The Lakeview Amphitheater will wrap up its yearly round of summertime concerts with veteran rock acts Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows.

TomatoFest 2017 in Auburn on Saturday and Sunday promises plenty of food and merchandise to purchase, as well as a special reunion concert featuring Joe Whiting and Mark Doyle.

Finally, the Syracuse Irish Festival will take over Clinton Square on Friday and Saturday. Expect a myriad of musical acts and alcoholic beverages.
