October is always a wonderful month on Cape Cod and here at Ashley Manor we highly recommend taking advantage of less crowded roadways, beaches and restaurants. The long weekend is a prime festival weekend with lots to do within an easy drive or our B & B.
The Yarmouth Seaside Festival runs October 6-8 and is the largest by far. Over 125 arts and crafts booths, children’s activities, food vendors and all sorts of entertainment make this one a must-attend event.
Osterville, one of the loveliest of the villages of the town of Barnstable has their all day Osterville Festival on Saturday, October 6 from 10-4.
If you head down Rt. 6A to historic and scenic Sandwich, you can attend a wonderful local Art and Craft Show held on the lawn at the Sandwich Public Library on Saturday, October 6. On Sunday, October 7, check out the amazing glass pumpkins on display for the 7th Annual Pumpkinfest at the Sandwich Glass Museum.
Sticking around for the week? Good move! The fall Cape Cod Restaurant Week begins on Monday, October 8 and runs through the week with specials and special treats for all.
