Christmas on Cape Cod

During the holidays, may we suggest a little Cape? Recapture the essence of the holiday season here by the sea. Stay in a cozy B&B, book a relaxing spa experience, dine fireside, and bundle up for a walk on the seashore. Festively decked shops and quaint village centers offer unique treasures for holiday wish lists.

Warm. Welcoming. Safe. Christmas on Cape Cod.

Cape Cod Christmas Events

Every December, the Cape is home to countless special events and attractions, accommodations packages, and holiday shopping opportunities. Festive events include village strolls, Santa's arrival by boat, craft fairs, harbor lights, parades, theater productions, holiday concerts, and quintessential Cape experiences like the Falmouth Christmas Parade and the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree in Provincetown. Cape Cod Central Railroad transports families on a magical, storybook ride aboard the Polar Express. Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich presents its Gardens Aglow celebration, featuring over nine miles of holiday lights. The Enchanted Village at Cape Codder Resort & Spa sparkles with thousands of lights and spirited carolers, and The Giants dazzle along historic 6A in Sandwich. The season culminates with First Night celebrations in Sandwich, Chatham and First Light Provincetown, which stretches the New Year's celebration into a fun-filled weekend. And while heading out for some evening holiday shopping at Mashpee Commons, you can't miss the spectacular display of twinkling lights at the Mashpee Rotary, a welcoming sight each Christmas season.
