Cape Cod Family Guide for Christmas and Holiday Events for Kids

With the holidays fast approaching and your calendar filling up, it can be very difficult to keep track of all the amazing Christmas and Holiday events taking place across the Cape Cod community for your family! This time of year is already hectic enough with everything you Moms have to do that we wanted to make your life simpler!

We have compiled our annual list of all family friendly Christmas and Holiday Events taking place on Cape Cod as well as Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

Our listings include parades, cookie strolls, train rides, Santa, and so much more!

Last year’s Cape Cod Family Holiday Calendar Event Guide was such a success again that we once again compiled it all in one place. We chose to put the list in alpha order by town and then date order under each town! Thanks to the wonderful people over at CapeCodMoms.com for this list.
