Winter Wonderland at Congress Hall

The North Pole comes to Cape May at Congress Hall’s Winter Wonderland every Thursday through Sunday from Nov. 23 to Dec. 28. The shopping village is made up of 15 specialty vendors, with unique gifts for kids from 1 to 92. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and sweet treats while shopping. Be sure to hop on the Congress Hall Express and Carousel. Just steps away in Santa’s Workshop you’ll find elves with Christmas crafts and story time with Mrs. Claus.

Santa Claus is no stranger to Cape May, as each year he is delighted to make an appearance at Congress Hall’s Breakfast with Santa. Every Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 24 through Dec. 23, families can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet and snap mantle-worthy pictures. On Dec. 7, 14 and 21, don’t miss Dinner With The Clauses, an interactive experience for the whole family. Sing along with Blue the Pig and friends as they prepare for the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Congress Hall teams up with Cape May Stage Thursday through Sunday beginning Nov. 30 for “The Santaland Diaries: a David Sedaris Play.” This hilarious performance tells the story of a struggling young writer who takes a job as a Christmas elf at Macy’s in New York City. Guests can enjoy lunch or dinner and a show on select dates at the Blue Pig Tavern.
