Cape Cod Events
March 2017

This month's Cape Cod events calendar features the Rotary Club's Home and Garden Show, opening day of the Cape Cod Maritime Museum's 2016 season, and the big St. Patrick's Day Parade and celebrations.

If spring makes an early appearance this year (fingers crossed for that!), March will be a fantastic month for beachcombing, nature walks, and bike riding, too.

Our Natural History Museum is a wonderful place to visit, especially in March when crowds are virtually non-existent.

Spend time exploring the museum's fascinating exhibits and walking the nature trails. There's something for the whole family at CCNMH!

More Info: Cape Cod St. Pat's Parade

One of the most anticipated Cape Cod events in March, the St. Paddy's Day parade honors the Irish with the wearin' of the green and a 2 mile-long parade featuring floats, marching bands, beautiful Colleens, and plenty of parade beads to go around!

This year's Grand Marshal is Ryan Delaire, defensive back for the Carolina Panthers. Let's hope he brings some of that beautiful southern spring weather north for parade day!

One of the most popular early spring events on Cape Cod, the Rotary's Home and Garden Show brings together more than 150 vendors showcasing the latest products for home and garden. Food, raffles, gifts, door prizes, DIY and financial information round out the attractions.

MVY Big Chili Contest

Where: Portuguese-American Club, Vineyard Avenue, Oak Bluffs (Martha's Vineyard)

Admission: Early Bird tickets $30; thereafter $35

More Info: MVY Chili Contest

Although it takes place on Martha's Vineyard, I've included the Big Chili Contest on the March Cape Cod events calendar because it's only a short ferry ride away - and it's definitely worth a day trip to the Vineyard!

This annual charity fundraising event features the best amateur and professional chili chefs cooking up pots of their famous chili and vying to become the Chili Champ for 2017. Whose is best? You be the judge! Tickets sell out early, so advance purchase is definitely required. 

Note: This is an event for adults. Must be 21 to attend.
