From April through July, our guests flock to the Cape to see nature’s bounty awash in color. Daffodils, rhododendrons, and hydrangeas are the talk of the town, and guests love attending the Cape Cod flower festivals in honor of each flower. The April and May festivals have the added advantage of fewer crowds and off-season rates.
Sunlight. Ocean breezes. Sand. Salt. Radiant blooms. What could make you happier?
Here is your Cape Cod flower festival guide. Book ahead to explore, smell, and see what is blooming and flourishing throughout iconic Cape Cod locations.
Nantucket Daffodil Festival
April 22 – 24, 2022, Nantucket
April is filled to the brim with daffodils in Yarmouth Port. Just driving around is a festival in itself! But if you are looking to fully celebrate all things daffodil, catch the ferry to Nantucket. Spend the day reveling in abundant sunshine, community-wide events like the Daffodil Antique Car Parade, and more than three million daffodils. A ‘daffy’ good time!
Brewster in Bloom
April 29 – May 1, 2022, Brewster
Brewster rolls out the red carpet with an entire weekend dedicated to blooms! Meander along the Brewster Cultural Trail to take in the history, rich artisan community, and quaint shops. Head to Drummer Boy Park for the fine arts and crafts show. Sign up for the Cape Cod 5 Bloom Run. And be sure to cap off the weekend with the town parade! Bloomin’ beautiful!
Heritage Museum and Gardens Rhododendron Festival
Usually Mid-May (2022 Dates Not Yet Posted), Sandwich
Picture yourself surrounded by more than one hundred varieties of world-famous rhododendrons in full bloom. Take time to interact with horticulture experts. Shop for the perfect signature plant.
