Cape Charles Fall Festival

It's fun for the whole family at the Cape Charles Fall Festival. This year's festival celebrates the bounty of the Eastern Shore and includes a Farmer's Market with local, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and Waterman's Market with fresh seafood right from the Chesapeake Bay. Artisans and crafters will be along Mason Avenue with many handmade creations. Free, live entertainment includes an Oom-Pah band, strolling musicians Carol & Malcolm, and over-sized marionettes by Spectrum Puppets. German-style food and other festival favorites, including beer and wine, available for purchase.

This year's festival features a "Best & Biggest Competition". Enter your homemade jam, jelly, pickle, and/or sweet potato pie or bring your biggest, homegrown pumpkin or sweet potato. Download entry form and mail by October 5.

Along with the falling leaves of the season, you'll want to fall in LOVE at the corner of Bay & Mason Avenues. LOVE works, the traveling LOVE sign from Virginia Tourism Corporation will make its Eastern Shore debut and be on display October 11-16. Take your picture, share out by social media and #LOVEVA to spread the love from Cape Charles across the globe.
