Cape Cod Events Search


If you know of a Cape Cod event that we’ve missed or if you run an event that you want to list, just register with us and list the event yourself. It’s free and easy to do. Moreover, when you contribute to the site, you’re helping make the site better, richer and more useful for all of us.

Here are some pointers to get your Cape Cod Events online faster. Most importantly, always use an image that is at least 600 pixels wide and no larger than 1600 pixels wide. Submit your image in the correct format. We only accept jpg, gif or png files. Secondly, describe your event as thoroughly as possible. Be sure and tell us about the organizers, the sponsors and most of all, the history of the event. Because our readers live all over the state, some might not have ever heard of your festival, even if you know everything about it. Also, if you have a schedule of events for the day or the weekend, be sure and include that as well.

Also, if you have a lot of Cape Cod events, let’s say more than four, please write us before you get started. We’re easy to work with, but we do get rather swamped and we don’t want your listings delayed for any reason. We like to get to know our active contributors in the beginning before we run into technical issues. We want you to be able to list quickly and beautifully. In addition to this, we can help you make your listings more distinctive and easier to find than your competitors.

Finally, we’re looking forward to working with you, so come on and join us. We need your contributions to the site. Let’s get started!
