The nation’s first seaside resort bursts forth during Cape May, New Jersey’s, 24th annual Spring Celebration, presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities (MAC), from Friday, April 26, through Sunday, May 19. Spring Celebration is more than three weeks of tours, activities and events that celebrate the budding of spring.

Victorian Food and Foodways.” Explore Cape May’s role in helping African Americans escape slavery during the Underground Railroad Trolley Tour, co-sponsored by the Center for Community Arts (CCA) and MAC.

Immerse yourself in Murder Mystery Dinners and enjoy themed brunches, including Jazz Brunch at the Estate for Mother’s Day, and an afternoon tea, “Pushing Boundaries,” presented by nationally renowned storyteller Ellouise Schoettler. There are abundant ways to enjoy the city’s charming Victorian gingerbread architecture, restaurants, flower gardens, tree-lined streets and Victorian-era landmarks daily, making Cape May the ideal destination for enjoying spring’s arrival.
