What do the festivals raise money for?2020-03-20T16:55:58-04:00

Festivals are fundraisers for Cape May MAC (Museums+Arts+Culture), a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the preservation, interpretation, and cultural enrichment of the Cape May region for residents and visitors. These festivals are among our largest yearly fundraisers and enable us to offer educational programs to area schools for free as well as assisting in our on-going historic preservation efforts.

Potential crafts vendors may contact Janice Corkery at jcorkery@capemaymac.org. Vendors must sell handmade or original goods, or antiques/collectibles.

Is there public transportation?2024-06-28T13:19:01-04:00

We do offer transportation options. Our red Cape May MAC trolleys will be providing a shuttle service throughout the day between the festival grounds and the Ocean Street end of the Washington Street mall in the center of town, near the Acme Market parking lot (paid parking), (check in at Washington Street Mall Information Booth for assistance if needed). This shuttle will pick-up and drop-off at 1048 Washington Street in front of the Physick Estate. It will loop approximately every 20 minutes.

Is there parking?2024-06-28T13:19:40-04:00

There is free parking available at the Cape May Elementary school parking lot on 921 Lafayette Street. This is located just two blocks away from the festival grounds. There is paid parking at the Acme parking lot at Ocean Street, with shuttle service steps away, from Washington Street Mall Information Booth to the grounds.

Where is the festival located? Can I walk there?2024-06-28T13:19:23-04:00

The Physick Estate is located at 1048 Washington Street. It is a little over ½ a mile (approximately 5 blocks or about a 10-minute walk) from the Washington Street Mall at Ocean Street (at the center of town). It is a pleasant walk or bicycle ride from most points in Cape May and no more than about a 40-minute walk from the farthest points in Cape May. Depending on your fitness and your location you can certainly walk.

Are the festivals pet friendly?2024-06-28T13:21:13-04:00

The grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate are pet-friendly. Please curb your dog and make sure that your pet is well-behaved and on a leash. We have a complimentary dog water tent to help keep your pups hydrated and cool, and shade trees and grass are abundant. Keep in mind that pathways on the grounds are covered with clamshells that get very hot in the sun and may be uncomfortable for your pet to walk on.

Are the festivals family friendly?2024-06-28T13:21:28-04:00

Yes! This festival is family-friendly. In addition to live music at the event, the Great American Street Organ Magic Show is from 11am to 4pm.
