In Cape May we love the spring and summer. And, this year, there are so many fun springtime events in Cape May. Events like the Designer Show House Tour & Tea Luncheon, Jazz Brunch at the Estate, Sip into Spring Festival and Cape May Stage Showcase Tour & Tea are just around the corner. Interested? Here’s everything you need to know.
Designer Show House Tour & Tea Luncheon
April 27 – May 24 | May 29 – June 14 | August 24 – September 6
This event combines an afternoon visit to the Cape May Designer Show House, the historic John P. Forsythe House on Beach Avenue, with a Classic Tea Luncheon at the Carriage House Café & Tearoom. Enjoy this three-course Cape May favorite at your leisure before or after your visit to the Show House.
Exit Zero Jazz Festival
April 20 – 22
Come see Chris Botti headline the Exit Zero Jazz Festival on Saturday, April 21. He’ll be joined by several other performers who, though not as famous, are incredibly talented musicians. In terms of popularity, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival has surpassed the old Cape May Jazz Festival that was a staple for so many years. In fact, Exit Zero is well on its way to becoming one of the premier festivals in the country.
Sip Into Spring Festival
This new one-day festival is part of the Cape May Spring Celebration. The sponsors of this festival, the folks at MAC, invite you to join in celebrating Spring’s rebirth with exciting outdoor gardening and nature demonstrations, live music, food, wine, beer, bloody marys and mimosas, crafts and collectibles, and more! Attendance is free, just pay for what you consume (and the Chef Poon Demonstration).
Chef Joseph K. Poon will present his fun, informative, high energy food demonstrations at the Carriage House Cafe & Tearoom, including information on healthy eating! Headquartered in Philadelphia, Chef Poon has appeared on the Food Network along with local and national television shows including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Ellen DeGeneres Show and PBS’ Christina Cooks.
Cape May Stage Showcase Tour & Tea
July 27 and August 17
For those interested in theatre, this is the ultimate insider’s tour of Cape May Stage’s Robert Shackleton Playhouse. On the tour, you’ll learn how one of the Country’s leading equity companies achieves a perfect fit between a state-of-the-art theater and a faithfully restored Cape May landmark (the Cape Island Presbyterian Church built in 1853). After the tour you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at the Carriage House Café & Tearoom at the Emlen Physick Estate. Purchase tickets online or at the Washington Street Mall Information Booth (at Ocean Street). Limited to 25 people.
