Come one, come all to Congress Hall's inaugural Fall Festival. This October, we're throwing a party on the grand lawn with fall favorites from Brats and Beer Cheese Pretzels and Funnel Cakes to candy apples and Apple Cider Doughnuts. Grab a pint from the nearby beer tent, serving local brews and “adult” slushies by the firepit. Kids and kids at heart will have a blast playing all of the fall-themed carnival games and taking a ride on the Congress Hall Spook Express! Paint a pumpkin and get your face painted to look like a spooky goblin, pretty princess, or strong superhero. Then, grab a camera—our pumpkin-filled hay wagon will make the perfect spot for a family photo-op! After the sun goes down stick around for the nighttime screening of “Hocus Pocus” and s'mores on Congress Hall’s lawn.

Carnival Games • train rides • arts & crafts
Beer Tent • s'mores • food tents & much more

cape may diamonds

A staple of Cape May culture and lore, Cape May Diamonds have a history that predates the birth of the United States. In the 1750s, it is said that a large Cape May Diamond was presented to Christopher Leaming, a local whaler, by the last chief of the Kechemeche tribe King Nummy. The Kechemeche believed that the 'diamonds' contained supernatural powers, and used them to seal bonds of peace and friendship.
