Upcoming Cape May events at The Queen Victoria and around town.

It’s officially spring and we’re so excited to welcome you to The Queen Victoria. There are many excellent reasons to visit us this season, first and foremost, the flowers around town are beginning to blossom. It’s a lovely time bursting with color and fragrance – and it’s just beginning. Trees, flowers, and foliage will continue to bloom throughout April and May.
What’s happening at our inn and around town this spring? A lot!

Book your room and join us for these fun springtime events for guests.


Big Cheesy Weekend | April 17, 2021

Our Big Cheesy Weekend is back! Every spring we host a complimentary cheese tasting party for our reserved guests called the “Big Cheesy”. It’s a wonderful event complete with different cheese varieties and accompaniments to sample. Last time we offered 13 different kinds of cheese, including delicious cranberry brie bites that were a huge hit. We also served wonderful Semolina bread with special olive oil and balsamic vinegars, as well as roasted red peppers and olives. This year, look forward to more of the same, plus several new treats as well.


Chocolate Lovers Weekend | May 15, 2021

Also back this spring is our Chocolate Lovers Weekend. Most everybody adores chocolate. There aren’t many things in the world as universally loved. That’s why we’re delighted to host a chocolate-tasting party fit for kings. Typically, we offer a slew of specialty chocolates along with chocolate baked goods, an assortment of melted chocolate for drizzling fruit and biscuits, and much more. Visiting the inn and attending our Chocolate Lovers Weekend is an especially lovely way to celebrate Mother’s Day, which falls on May 9th this year. Book your room, gift it to mom, and celebrate a second time a week later.
