According to the Arts Foundation's Executive Director, Kevin Howard, "Fall for the Arts has grown into a vital part of Cape Cod's cultural calendar featuring close to 500 unique events in every genre. Whether it is Fall visitors or residents experiencing the arts in their own or a neighboring community, this festival validates what we've always known - that Cape Cod is a vibrant and rich cultural destination."
The Fall for the Arts Festival is designed to highlight the region's exciting cultural scene, extend the tourism season and to encourage Cape residents to get out and experience the rich arts and culture that exists in the region. Offering visitors and residents the opportunity to meet and talk with artists, enjoy live entertainment, discover cultural organizations, visit museums and take a walk through Cape history are activities that will continue to distinguish us as a cultural center.
