Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rotary Park | December 2

West Cape May Community Christmas Parade | December 3
Join in on the holiday fun at West Cape May Community Christmas Parade. Now in its 55th year, the parade marches through town beginning at the West Cape May Volunteer Firehouse and ends on Carpenter Lane in the City of Cape May. Each year a small group of volunteers assembles to create an unforgettable hometown memory. Don’t miss it.
Hospitality Night on The Washington Street Mall | December 9
Get your Christmas shopping done during this festive seasonal event complete with special discounts, sales, and tokens of appreciation for all shoppers! This really is a fun holiday event full of cheer. A Victorian Santa Claus will make a special appearance, plus enjoy holiday music and caroling as well.
Cape May Christmas Candlelight House Tour
Cape May Christmas Candlelight House Tours are a beloved annual tradition for all to enjoy. Tours take place on three nights in December. Explore Cape May homes, bed & breakfast inns, churches, and hotels – all with beautiful interiors decorated for the holidays. Maps are provided and a local trolley shuttle travels on a planned route with limited stops, but we recommend walking to get the most out of the tour. Advanced purchase is highly recommended.
Holiday Lights Trolley Ride
Who can resist the twinkle of beautiful Victorian homes decorated for the holidays? No one! That’s why this trolley tour is so popular and so much fun. Enjoy Christmas music and tales of Victorian traditions that are still practiced today. Blankets (and hot chocolate) are recommended. Tour begins and ends at the trolley stop on Ocean Street.
