Cape May Spring Festival – Virtual Event

With the continuing COVID-19 health crisis, we have taken the precautionary step of eliminating the Festival’s in-person format – we are going virtual.

We are truly excited to transport the splendor of spring migration in Cape May right into your own home in a virtual format on May 23rd and 24th.

COST: $30 for Saturday; $30 for Sunday; OR $50 for both days*
