Cape Cod Events 2011

Simon Hunton -


The Platinum Pebble Boutique Inn is now officially open and happily taking reservations for the 2011 season so I thought this would be an opportune moment to look at what events will be taking place across the Cape during this year in the hope that one of the attractions may entice you to book a trip and visit our Cape Cod B&B.
So here goes:
Until 20th March – The Buddy Holly Story (Harwich Junior Theatre)
29th April – 1st May – Brewster in Bloom
13th May – Toast of Harwich
8th – 14th May – Cape & Islands Beer Week
18th May – Art in Bloom (Orleans)

15th – 16th October – Wellfleet Oyster Festival
30th October – Cape Cod Marathon

So whether your pleasure is music, sailing, film, art, or simply eating and drinking, I think we’ve got it covered. Likewise, for those who suffer from guilt problems we have plenty of exercise opportunities with road races, the marathon and the Last Gasp.

This is not to forget that throughout the season there is the wonderful whale-watching, our miles of pristine beaches, kite-surfing, golf (32 courses I believe!), bird-watching, nature trails, cycling, kayaking, antiquing and plenty of history to satisfy any educational desires that you may harbor.

If you need help with any of the above please contact our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast via the website, e-mail ( or phone (1 508 432 7766).

Safe travels,
