Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day Weekend marks the beginning of summer in Cape May. It’s a very busy time packed with celebratory events hosted by Cape May MAC and other local organizations. This year, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 30. Book Montreal Beach Resort now to experience the start of summer in Cape May. In late May you can expect warm temperatures, blue skies, and a bustling atmosphere. Check back for a list of holiday events and special activities.
4th of July
4th of July weekend is one of the most popular in Cape May as our oceanfront village is an ideal spot to celebrate Independence Day. With colorful fireworks, parades, special events, and old-fashioned summertime fun, Cape May is absolutely a must-visit destination for this holiday. At Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille (our onsite restaurant), guests enjoy the rooftop bar plus delicious food, cocktails, and friendly service. While Harry’s features live music every night all summer long, a very special performance is scheduled for 4th of July, 2022. Don’t miss it.
Exit Zero Jazz Festival
This spring’s Exit Zero Jazz Festival (May 13-15) promises to be an excellent show. International touring artists will perform on two outdoor stages at Exit Zero Ferry Park each festival day. Headline concerts are scheduled in Schmidtchen Theater, plus Cape May bars and restaurants will host several performances also. You might find yourself second-lining to a New Orleans brass band one minute and snaking through town behind a 22-piece Brazilian drum bloco the next.
