Summer may be winding down on Cape Cod, but festival season is just beginning to heat up.
September is the first month of fun fall festivals – and all of them offer a little something for everyone, including some good eats!
Some festival goers are day-trippers, some are weekend adventurers and many are locals looking to take a break and enjoy some good entertainment and maybe even get in some pre-holiday shopping.
And it goes without saying, the kids will love the rides, parades and, of course, the fireworks!

Cape Cod Vacations In The Fall
It goes without saying that Cape Cod in the fall is simply stunning. Yet, the region’s festivals also offer visitors so much more. Enjoy succulent local seafood, great music, arts and crafts – all against a backdrop of beautiful autumn foliage. That’s Cape Cod in the fall!
And what’s even better are the hotel prices you’ll find at many of the resorts during the Cape Cod September festivals. Most rates are lowered to accommodate Cape Cod tourists – which include both couples and families.
