The Chatham Merchants Association presents Oktoberfest! Coming on the heels of the Pumpkin People display (which starts October 12), this festival brings old-fashioned games, German-style beers, bratwursts and other delicious fare, and general merriment to Kate Gould Park. Get there early because lines start forming at noon.
October is a great month to visit the Cape and stay at Chatham Tides. The annual Pumpkin People art festival features creative takes on the theme, crafted by local businesses, organizations, and just plain folk. Watch fall arrive in all its glory on the coast and enjoy the charm of Chatham!
