Fall is Festival Time on Cape Cod

What to do in September after a leisurely morning and a delicious breakfast at Ashley Manor? How about enjoying a local festival? 

It would be nearly impossible to list all the wonderful festivals happening on Cape Cod this fall so we’ve picked a few favorites to check out. At the end of the post there will be a link to find even more. Most festivals are free and have activities for families. Some have food and beverage available and some are all about the food and beverage.

This Saturday, September 8, is the annual Cape Cod Wildlife Festival with live animal demonstrations and animal themed exhibits and activities. It’s free and fun and has a spectacular view across Cape Cod Bay to Sandy Neck. It’s held at the Mass Audubon Long Pasture Sanctuary off Rt. 6A in Barnstable.

Celebrate the end of your day at the Craft Beer Cask Fest at Cape Cod Beer. There will food and craft beers. What could be better than that on a late summer Saturday? It will run 2-6 p.m on Saturday, September 8 and is only a few miles down the street from the  Wildlife Festival on Phinney’s Lane in Hyannis.

Take a nice scenic drive down historic 6A and continue on to Eastham on Sunday for the annual Windmill Weekend Festival and Parade. Check local listings for road closures as the parade will go right down Rt. 6 in Eastham. There’s something for everyone at this unique and fun event. The weekend runs daily from September 7-9. The parade is on September 9 only.

On September 15 why not check out the Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival? This is a unique fundraising event full of fun and food right on Nauset Beach in Orleans.

If you’re a pet lover then you’ll love the Paws at the Beach Walk and Festival at Craigville Beach in Centerville. Get more details on their website. There is a $10 admission fee that goes to pet rescue.
