Winter Wonderland at Congress Hall

The North Pole comes to Cape May at Congress Hall’s Winter Wonderland every Thursday through Sunday beginning Nov. 24. The shopping village is made up of over 20 artists and 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 Painted 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, and each year he is delighted to make an appearance at Congress Hall’s Breakfast with Santa. Every Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 25 through Dec. 17, families can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet and snap mantle-worthy pictures. On Dec. 9 and 16, don’t miss Dinner With The Claus’, an interactive experience for the whole family. Sing along with Cookie the Elf and Blue the Pig as they prepare for Santa and Mrs. Claus’ arrival.

In the Harrison Room, Congress Hall teams up with Cape May Stage each weekend for “A Christmas Carol: The Radio Show” by David Alberts. This one-man performance is family friendly and tells Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale in the style of a 1940s radio play. Guests can enjoy dinner and a show or lunch and a Sunday matinee at the Blue Pig Tavern.

Holiday meals are offered at the Blue Pig Tavern, and special buffet experiences are available for Christmas and Thanksgiving in Congress Hall’s Ballroom. For reservations and information about these and other holiday events at Congress Hall, visit or call (609) 884-6542.
