Labor Day Weekend Events

Buffalo, NY

Love chicken wings? Then Buffalo should be your next destination for Labor Day Weekend! The National Buffalo Wing Festival, which was inspired by the movie Osmosis Jones, has been held every Labor Day Weekend for the past 16 years. Sample a variety of spicy, sweet or savory wings from over 20 restaurants! Think you can try them all?

We were proud to be this year’s Official Lodging Sponsor and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store for next year! To see a list of our hotels in the area, visit:

Providence, RI

In the summer time, Providence is known for the elaborate WaterFire, which is put on by a nonprofit group in order to bring a tasteful display of art to the city. The award-winning sculpture consists of over eighty sparkling bonfires and its beauty attracts millions of visitors. While this is an ongoing event all summer, Labor Day Weekend is usually one of the last full lightings of the season.

If you’re interested in attending next year and are traveling from out of state or would like to explore all Rhode Island has to offer, stay at one of our newly renovated hotels, Courtyard Providence Lincoln and Hampton Inn Coventry, which are both within 15 miles of downtown.

Cleveland, OH

It may be September, but to Cleveland it’s Oktober(fest)! This event, which is Northeast Ohio’s largest annual outdoor festival, features music, beer, authentic ethnic cuisine and more! Founded in 2004, this celebration has been held every Labor Day weekend at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.

If you’re interested in planes, soar into the holiday weekend with the Cleveland Air Show! Watch the planes fly above or explore the grounds for interactive activities. Your weekend fun will be sure to take flight after this event!

Whichever event interests you, we have a handful of hotels near the fun! Plan your trip for next year’s Labor Day Weekend and stay at Hampton Inn & Suites Cleveland-Beachwood, Homewood Suites Cleveland-Beachwood or SpringHill Suites Cleveland Solon, two of which will be newly renovated as of next year!

Boston, MA

Start your holiday weekend off with a spark! ‘Ooh’ and ‘aah’ at the firework display over Boston Harbor on Thursday evening. Enjoy the show on a fireworks cruise boat or find a spot by the waterfront.

If you’re looking for back to school deals, scroll down Newbury Street for eight blocks worth of shops and dining spots. Or venture outside of Boston to Wrentham Premium Outlets for even bigger savings at the outdoor shopping plaza, which is a short drive from Homewood Suites Canton, Hampton Inn Marlborough and Residence Inn Brockton.
