Put on your boaters and bustles and celebrate Cape May’s unique heritage during the 39th annual Victorian Weekend, sponsored by Cape May’s leader in cultural and heritage tourism, the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC). Experience Cape May’s “gilded-age” with trolley tours down the gas-lit streets, tours of Victorian-era homes and inns, food and wine events, living history programs, lectures, workshops, performances and more from Friday, Oct. 7 through Tuesday, Oct. 11.

New for 2011: discover Cape May’s seventh annual Designer Show House, a four-story harbor side homeowner’s dream, satisfy your sweet tooth with a Cape May institution at Fudge Fantasy, an event co-sponsored by the famous Fudge Kitchen, dare to attend the new Murder at the Physick Estate production, gather some hay and stakes and make a creation for the Physick Estate’s Scarecrow Alley, and learn about South Cape May, the town that vanished into the sea, during Cape May’s Victorian Weekend. Returning favorites will have you kicking up your heels as they did in Cape May’s Victorian heyday, touring Victorian gems, tasting innkeeper’s chocolate desserts, solving a murder mystery during lunch or dinner, touring the wineries of Cape May County and more.
