Sidewalk Sales and Jazz Parades Promise An Exciting Weekend on the Mall

The merchants of the Washington Street Mall invite you to their picturesque downtown town square this weekend for their semi-annual sidewalk sales along with the Exit Zero Jazz Festival’s Second Line parades. The Mall is in full bloom, and Cape May's small town charm will be alive and well to create an exciting Spring weekend in the heart of America’s original seaside resort!

The sidewalk sales are famous for some incredible deals from Mall merchants. You will be sure to find some of the hottest deals of the season. Most of the Mall's boutiques, gift shops, specialty stores, and other shopping options set up tables and displays on areas of the Mall in front of their storefronts with a variety of specials featuring great savings on clothing, gifts, collectibles, jewelry, and more! There are savings to be had for everyone! The Spring Sidewalk Sales take place Thursday, May 12 through Sunday, May 15, with displays typically up from 9am to 7pm each day.

On top of the great sidewalk sale savings, there will also be some great music as the Exit Zero Jazz Festival’s Second Lines parade down the Mall. Inspired by the famous New Orleans second line parades, the tradition has come to Cape May during jazz fest weekend! On Friday evening, May 13, Philly's favorite seven-piece brass band, Snacktime Philly, will parade around the Mall jammin' out to their covers of funk, soul, R&B, and pop. On Saturday evening, May 14, the Brooklyn-based all-female brass band Brass Queens will parade around the Mall jammin' out to their diverse repertoire of funk, soul, and classic hits by female artists. All are welcome to dance to the beat of the music and follow the bands as they make their way through the heart of Cape May each evening at 7:30pm!
