November 27 - December 23, 2020
“We are excited to let you know about this year’s Olde Fashioned Cape May Christmas Celebration that features fun and family-friendly holiday
activities from November 27th through the end of the year. Come enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays from our traditional city Tree Lighting
to new events like Christmas Carol Karaoke at Rotary Park. Cape May was voted Best Christmas Town in the State of New Jersey by Readers Digest
and is a magical place to visit during the holidays. Our masks may hide our smiles but not the twinkle in our eyes this season.
So please join me and celebrate the holidays with your family and friends in beautiful Cape May. “
