Celebrate Christmas in Cape Charles at Festive Fridays

Posted by Sarah Barban on Oct 25, 2019 12:36:00 PM

There's nothing like a beautifully decorated main street bustling with holiday shoppers to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Each year from the Friday after Thanksgiving until the Friday before Christmas Cape Charles rolls out the red carpet for the holiday season during Festive Fridays.


Everything in downtown has a dash of holiday spirit. Santa and Mrs. Claus greet children, horse drawn carriages circle the streets offering cozy rides and the sounds of local musicians fill the air.

Shops keep things merry and bright with tasty treats and festive decorations, plus extended hours give you more time to shop. Restaurants pull out all the stops with nightly specials and holiday cheer. 

Free Christmas Movies

The festive fun doesn't end with shopping and dining in Cape Charles. During Festive Fridays you can grab a seat at the beautiful, art deco Palace Theater and settle in for a free, family friendly holiday movie. Check out the schedule for the 2020 Season:
