About Autumn in Olde Cotuit Fall Festival...This popular community event iis held on the grounds of the Dottridge Homestead,. This is the perfect ADMISSION FREE event for the whole family, including the little ones, for some seasonal fun and festive activities like 'Pumpkin tic- tac-toe and Pumpkin checkers.
At our festival "Farm Stand" we will be selling delicious homemade pies by the slice or whole for you to take home. Harvest favorites fresh apple cider, caramel apples and doughnuts will also be available for purchase, along with a beautiful array of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes.
The Dottridge Homestead, which showcases life on coastal Cape Cod in the mid-19th Century, along with the Cotuit Museum and the William Morse Fire Museum, which houses the first mechanized fire truck on Cape Cod, will all be open for visitors on this special day.
Cotuit has been known for centuries as the home of many venerable whaling masters, so naturally, we thought it befitting to finally invite a whale to our festival.
