It’s always a great time to visit Cape Cod, but some parts of the year offer different benefits. Obviously, summer is a fantastic time due to warmer temperatures and more beach time. Fall offers the changing of the leaves, while spring offers the promise of new beginnings. But in addition to these wonderful natural events, parts of the year are better because of the events that are taking place. Because of that, we are offering this list of five upcoming events you won’t want to miss to help you plan your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Cape Cod!
There are few things in life that are better than chocolate. As a matter of fact, no matter how hard we try, we can’t even think of one, which means this celebration of all things chocolate is at the top of our can’t-miss list! Held in South Dennis at the Ring Brothers Marketplace on February 10 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, this festival is worth planning a vacation around. Chocolate beer, chocolate desserts, and a hot chocolate bar are just a few of the sweet treats you can expect!
This festival ensures that you don’t miss a thing. Held every Sunday from January 21st through February 25th at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham, showings of nature documentaries are 100% free!
The month of May is the one we choose to honor our heritage. Living on an island means the sea is how many of our ancestors made a living over the years, and this event is held all over Cape Cod in nearly every village. Museums offer special exhibits, special cruises around the harbor are offered, and there’s even a special Maritime History Symposium scheduled for your educational entertainment.
Opening day is June 12th, and every baseball fan on the Cape tries to attend all the games. This is where many of the past, present, and future stars of baseball show what they are made of as they connect their wooden bats with the balls (no aluminum bats allowed in the CCBL) and knock them out of the park! If you have never heard of the Cape Cod Baseball League, you may not be a true fan!
It goes without saying that 4th of July on Cape Cod is beyond exciting and wonderful; the birth of our country happened not far away, and we are proud of our contributions to our country’s freedom. Expect old-fashioned parades with bikes, carriages, local children, lemonade and hot dogs, and a show that will knock your socks off!
