Festivals-events happening in Cape May all year-long.
Some of our favorite festivals-events happening in Cape May this year are listed below. By far, not an exhaustive list. This list doesn’t include concerts in Rotary park or Movies on the beach. Two season-long categories that could be separate blog listings, by themselves.
Starting off in less than 10 days is the Exit Zero Jazz Festival.The City of Cape May is the real star of the Festival. The intimacy of the town coupled with the diversity of the venues all within walking distance, makes it an ideal place to feature the Festival’s European style, one where fest-goers hop from clubs to concert halls and immerse themselves in the excitement and vibrancy of the music! It is an ideal destination for family and friends to connect and enjoy a great time in the festive atmosphere.
