Telluride Film Festival: Now in its 38th year, the Colorado festival never reveals its lineup in advance. Still, it's worth the risk. Three film legends are honored with tributes every year, and the film selection is top-notch. Last year, the festival lifted the curtain on Oscar winner The King's Speech.

Chicago Jazz Festival: In its 33rd year, the festival will be spread throughout the city at Grant Park, Millennium Park and the Chicago Cultural Center. Orbert Davis is the artist in residence this year.

Los Angeles's The Taste: Food Network favorites Giada de Laurentiis and Duff Goldman are among the celebrity chefs anchoring L.A.'s unprecedented four-day food fest, in which nine tasting events will be held throughout Beverly Hills, Hollywood and downtown.

Atlanta's Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival: Look up! Callaway Gardens hosts the 13th annual hot air balloon festival this weekend. Don't miss the balloon burners illuminating the sky during the "Balloon Glow" on Friday at dusk at Robin Lake Beach.

Blue Hill Fair: Get back to basics at the quintessential county fair in Blue Hill, Maine. From the tractor pull to the blueberry pie-eating contest to the Ferris wheel, it's down-home Americana.
