2022 Cape Cod Memorial Day Weekend Events Guide

Memorial Day weekend is not only the official kickoff to the “summer" season here on Cape Cod, but also an excellent opportunity to honor the soldiers that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We would not be able to get outside and enjoy all the spectacular things Cape Cod has to offer without their dedication, their service, and their sacrifice.

Whether you choose to celebrate with a cookout in the backyard or by attending a remembrance ceremony, however you choose to observe this Memorial Day weekend 2022, Sea Shore Cape Cod Summer Rentals wants to help you make the most of the 2022 Summer season kick off. We put together a full guide to all of this year’s family fun on Cape Cod. Let us know which event you will be attending and maybe we will see you there!
