Congress Hall Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Escape to the North Pole this Holiday Season as Congress Hall’s Grand Lawn is transformed into a magical winter wonderland. Explore unique gifts from over twenty vendors in our enchanted shopping village. Sip on a cozy cup of hot cocoa and enjoy special seasonal treats as you mosey on over to Santa’s Workshop. There you will find the elves creating personalized Santa hats for visitors young and old. All aboard the Congress Hall Express! You won’t want to miss the train ride as it travels around Cape May’s North Pole.

Every weekend is a new adventure, and every Sunday is a new performance on our Veranda. Enjoy local performance groups as they participate in Congress Hall’s Winter Wonderland Concert Series.
