Bicentennial Birthday Dinners

December 28 & 29

6:00 pm Congress Hall Ballroom

The buzz around Cape May this summer was the sold out Bicentennial Birthday Dinners in the Ballroom. If you missed them- don’t worry! The revival will be back this December with the original cast!

December 28, and 29 come enjoy this singular event, with a special holiday spin. As we close the books on the Bicentennial Celebration, come and help us blow out the candles on this very special birthday year.

Take a step back in time at Congress Hall’s weekly Bicentennial Birthday Celebration. These interactive sing-a-longs will be led by Annie Knight, who owned Congress Hall from 1904-1931, along with Congress Hall’s current owner, Curtis Bashaw. Enjoy a family style feast with a modern spin on yesterday’s favorite dishes.

Annie and Curtis will tell the story of Congress Hall’s 200-year history, with special appearances from some of the most distinguished guests that stayed at Congress Hall when it was “The Summer White House”. Sing “Happy Birthday” and blow out the candles on Congress Hall’s 200th this December in the Ballroom.

Adults: $65
Children (Ages 5-12): $25
