Memorial Day is the perfect time of year to celebrate the winter’s end and what better place to do that than Falmouth, Cape Cod?

April and May in Falmouth are the official kick off to our warm weather season. Join us for a long weekend as we celebrate spring with something for everyone.

Arrive in time for Spohr Gardens’ annual Daffodil Days event and you won’t be disappointed. This incredible six-acre garden sits on Oyster Pond and while open year round, the last two Saturdays in April promise thousands upon thousands of daffodils! Daffodil Days has been a tradition at the gardens since 2004, and in the years since, the town has banded together to plant daffodils all over Falmouth. Come for a long weekend and embark on a daffodil tour.

Spohr Gardens is walkable (or kayak/canoe-able) from the B&B’s in Falmouth, and admission is free while donations are appreciated.

From voting on your favorite May basket, to retail sales and dining specials, Falmouth Village Blooming (May 1st – 10th) can’t be missed.

There’s also a May garden basket design workshop with Anna Holmes on the 5th from 6-8pm. On May 8th, The Locket Project sponsored by View Photography will exhibit “Calling All Heros”, a series of photos depicting special relationships between young boys and the men in their lives. There will be a beautiful story time on May 9th at Eight Cousins Book Store. Come enjoy a reading of Guess How Much I Love You and take photos with Little Nut Brown Hare.

Falmouth Village Blooming will go out with a bang on May 10th with the most incredible garden tour. The Falmouth B&B Association will open their gardens for tours and mini-workshops. Visit Captain’s Manor Inn to learn how cattle troughs are quickly becoming the next big trend in gardening. Saunter over to Palmer House Inn to learn to plant successful container gardens (refreshments provided). Bring the kids to Woods Hole Passage to participate in a child centered garden project and be sure to stop by Woods Hole Inn and Bailey’s by the Sea to enjoy tea and cookies on the porch.

However you like to celebrate spring, Falmouth has you covered!

Thanksgiving on Cape Cod is a lovely time of year and marks the beginning of the holiday season with lots of special events. While celebrating Thanksgiving in Falmouth a must see is the annual Holidays at Highfield event which is celebrated from November 28th though December 7th from 10 am until 4 pm everyday.  As in years past there will be a number of traditions that will continue such as the tea shoppe, decorations from local decorators as well as florists and retailers. The gift shop is expanding with incredibly beautiful and one of a kind gifts on hand. The international crèche collection will once again be on display and music entertainment will be announced on the website. Check this link for up to the date event information Holidays at Highfield.

The first weekend in December of December 5-7, also marks the annual Holidays by the Sea celebration in Falmouth. From the 5K Jingle Jog to the Santa Parade there is much to do. A personal favorite is the Holiday Stroll on Saturday December 6th which includes refreshments and music at many of the retail shops and restaurants in Falmouth Village. Stroll along this beautifully decorated stretch of Main Street and Queen Buyway with a culmination of spirit at the Village Green for carols and lighting of the Holiday Tree and other displays.  For Holidays by the Sea information click this link.

Another popular annual holiday event that starts around Thanksgiving is Gardens Aglow at The Heritage Museums and Gardens in nearby Sandwich Cape Cod. This event starts on November 28th and continues through December 28th from 4:30 until 8:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For more information on this event click on this link Gardens Aglow.

An annual tradition has been Holidays at  Highfield Hall.  Every year it just gets better!  This year the interior decorations were magnificent and then there was the terrific electric train display, the pocket full of poseys display, the international creche displays and the new holiday store in just off the grand hallway.

The Cape Cod Marathon kicks off this Sunday, October 28th, with runners coming from all over the country and the world to experience what “Runners World” Magazine has called one of the top ten “most scenic” marathons in America.

The race, which starts and ends on the Falmouth Village Green conveniently located next to several of Falmouth’s B&B’s (see list for more info), winds past cranberry bogs, down to famous Woods Hole village, past Nobska Light and along several of Falmouth’s white sand beaches.  It is a challenging and truly stunning course.

Runners are encouraged to book early, as accommodations often sell out this weekend, and consider booking two nights or more to appreciate all Falmouth has to offer, and shower, rest and recuperate after the long run.

 
Highfield Hall has really gone to the dogs!

Set against the backdrop of this historic Falmouth property — built in 1872 as an extravagant family home, yet falling into disrepair and disuse until the town procured the property and its adjoining 700 acres via eminent domain in 2000 — the third annual Hounds at Highfield (held on Sunday June 26th) drew hordes of happy hounds and their handlers.

Events of the day included agility course demonstrations, tours of the property and adjoining Beebe Woods, face painting (for human attendees only), music, food, and vendors.

The Beebe family, original owners of Highfield Hall, were well known in Falmouth and beyond for their love of all creatures canine. The annual Hounds of Highfield event brings a bit of that love back to the storied estate, and shares it with the 21st century residents and their four-legged friends who feel the same.

Another great reason to visit Falmouth in the summertime!
