September – December 2014
This is a celebration of the true American art forms of jazz and blues that includes a variety of concerts and a Friday evening free jazz stroll in the park and shops along Main Street, at the Falmouth Museums on the Green, and in the Queen’s Buyway. Check the website for schedule.
The Palmer House Inn, across the street from the Queen’s Byway and the start of the Friday Night Stroll, is the perfect place to set up your base and venture out to all the festival events.
Top decorators and designers showcase their talents in the elegant rooms of Highfield Hall. The event also features an extensive Gift Gallery, a tea Shoppe with home-made goodies, a wreath display and sale, and pop-up holiday how-to tables. Santa will be available by the elegant fireplaces on weekends. Special exhibits include Salley Mavor’s Pocketful of Posies Christmas tree and doll house display. Bill Hendel’s extensive international crèche collection will also be on view. The popular model train room is back this year, through Dec. 1.
Highfield Hall is located a short stroll from the Palmer House.
The crisp snap of seasonal glitter starts with the Holidays by the Sea Weekend in Falmouth. Begin the festive weekend by singing carols at Nobska Lighthouse as the winter’s sun sets over Vineyard Sound. Enjoy a heartwarming breakfast with your stay at the Palmer House Inn before zipping out to greet Santa as he arrives by boat at beautiful Falmouth Harbor. Join in the caroling at the lighting of the Village Green, enjoy the hospitality of merchants as you stroll down decorated Main Street before and after the lighting. Get ready for the biggest small-town Christmas parade in all of Southeast New England. Many of our members produce fun, family-oriented, community events for the Holidays by the Sea Weekend, so be sure to check our online calendar of events and the Main Street kiosk for schedules and plan a family weekend to remember.
