If you check out our Events page you’ll see that there are a number of great reasons to visit the Cape in the fall. Here are just a few:

Yarmouth Seaside Festival

Celebrating Yarmouth for 41 years, this annual festival offers artist exhibits, a kayaking race, sand castle contests, a parade, fireworks, a beach bonfire, and many activities for kids.

Learn more and see the schedule of daily events here.

Here’s a rental house near the Bass River beach bonfire.


Pumpkin People in the Park in Chatham

At Kate Gould Park on Main Street, visit unique and creative pumpkin people, each provided by a local Cape business. Here’s a downtown home walkable to this festive event.


Cape Cod Cranberry Day in Sandwich

Spend a delicious Saturday at Briar Nature Center where you can enjoy cranberry bog tours, cooking demonstrations, and amazing desserts. Here’s a home near Green Briar.


Dogs on the beach!

All of our furry 4-legged friends are welcome back to the beaches. Each town has different days; check out the list indicating when Spot is allowed to run free in the salty air. Need a pet-friendly rental? Here’s one in Provincetown available for Columbus Day weekend.


Climb Highland Light

Kick off the holiday weekend in Truro at Light up the Night at Highland Light! Climb the lighthouse in the early evening to see the sunset over the Bay and the moon rise. Learn more about this deLIGHTful Friday night event.

And here’s one of the many places to stay in Truro.
