Wellfleet OysterFest 2013 is coming up fast. I can feel the excitement out there! October 19th and 20th sees what will be the 13th Wellfleet Oyster Fest. Get in there early to make your plans if these include staying a night or two on Cape Cod. The Inn At Cape Cod will be offering an interesting package to our guests – but more of that in a minute.
Wellfleet OysterFest 2013 is a much lauded and eagerly awaited event on the Cape Cod calendar every year. It brings together hundreds of people, locals and visitors alike, for a weekend full of hometown flavor and big time fun. There is something for every one, from local cuisine, cooking demos and educational lectures to live music, arts and crafts, road races, walking tours……… and more. For me, well I shall be watching the annual Oyster Shuck-off Competition to get a few tips – it is not as easy as it looks.
Wellfleet Shellfish Promotion And Tasting, Inc.(SPAT) put on the Wellfleet Oysterfest 2013. Last year an estimated 25,000 people walked through festival entrances, donating $1 each. Proceeds from The Fest Fund are awarded by SPAT to grants for the Town educational programs.
This third weekend of October is a great weekend to take a break of 2 or 3 days in other respects, not
least for the chance to see Cape Cod’s fall colours and enjoy the delights of The Historic District, which is where we come in. There is very limited accommodation in sleepy Wellfleet, and what there is will be snapped up quickly. The big drawback to staying anywhere north of Eastham at that time of year is that so much has closed for the season, and it can feel like a ghost town. This is not the case from Orleans along Route 6A as far as Sandwich. We are located in the middle of this historic conservation area east to west and at the narrowest point north to south, making our location hard to beat. Within ten minutes you can be in Hyannis for shopping and even more restaurants.
So why not give Cape Cod a visit at this beautiful time of year, make a date to call into Wellfleet OysterFest 2013. Wellfleet is only 35 minutes away. We have luxury rooms and suites to offer you, all remodeled with stunning bathrooms, some with beautiful fireplaces. To mark this very special weekend, The Inn At Cape Cod is offering “The World is Your Oyster” 3 day package. Do not wait too long to make your reservation. CLICK HERE for details of what is included.
