Hosted by New Jersey Audubon, the Cape May Fall Festival is the festival of the year for bird lovers. And since Cape May has an extensive bird population, we couldn’t imagine a better place for such a great event.
Held Thursday, October 19th through Sunday, October 22nd, the Cape May Fall Festival is all about birds. In fact, the Cape May Fall Festival is the longest running birding festival in the country and only gets better with each passing year. With so many birds, you will find no better place to immerse yourself in the birding world.
