A very special thank you to all guests who supported us by returning to The Queen Victoria this summer and fall. We’re so grateful and look forward to welcoming you again soon. As we eagerly look ahead to the 2021 high season in Cape May, we anticipate an outstanding schedule of events from Cape May MAC (Museums+Arts+Culture), Exit Zero Jazz Festival, the Cape May Summer Concert Series, and more. Here’s a preview:


Spring 2021 Events from Cape May MAC

Cape May MAC is the leading sponsor of historic, cultural, and entertainment events in Cape May.

While some events such as Sip into Spring” and “Blues, Brews & Barbeque” are canceled (they draw too big a crowd), MAC plans to host smaller events like Sunset Jazz concerts and other concerts that draw fewer people but are just as fun! In fact, MAC hopes to host an event just about every night!


Exit Zero Jazz Festival | April 23-25, 2021

As of today, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival is on! Here’s a list of artists coming to Cape May this April.

  • Kandace Springs
  • Joey Alexander
  • Joey Defransesco trio
  • Matthew Whitaker Quartet
  • Madeleine Peyroux Trio

For 2021, the plan is to hold the festival at the Emlen Physick Estate. If necessary, CDC guidelines for social distancing will be implemented. In October, that resulted in increased legroom and plenty of space between groups of seats. 2021 Earlybird VIP passes are on sale now! Don’t wait – we anticipate this event will sell out.


Cape May Summer Concert Series

We’re so excited the city has already announced its summer concert series lineup. Terrific acts from all over the country will be here through July and August, providing outstanding entertainment for all.

  • The Manhattans, Aug 4, 2021
  • The Hit Men, Aug 11, 2021
  • The Modern Gentlemen, Aug 25, 2021


If you’d like to purchase concert tickets, call the Convention Center Box Office at 609-884-9565.

Craft Beer & Crab Festival | August 14 & 15, 2021

The Popular Craft Beer & Crab Festival is back in August 2021!

This two day festival on the grounds of the Physick Estate boasts local and regional craft beers, delicious summer food like steam crab, pulled pork, crab cakes, shrimp, hot dogs, and more. Here, you’ll also find live music and yummy treats from regional vendors. This event has always been the highlight of the summer since its beginning. 2021 promises to be no different.

As always, we’re excited to welcome you to The Queen Victoria. As you can see, we’ve got a lot to look forward to in 2021. Stay tuned for more updates about the high season in Cape May and other updates about the inn.
