Cape Cod’s live entertainment scene in the summer (and even in the off-season) has something for everyone, including live music, karaoke nights and kids performers.
Red Jacket Resorts schedule a variety of special performances for adults and kids each week, ranging from musicians in the evening to live animal shows with our friends at the Amazing Animal Ambassadors during the day. If you’re looking for some entertainment off-site, there's a slew of local bars and restaurants where guests can check out great live entertainment, and our friends at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and Cape Playhouse host a number of plays and performances for children each summer. The Melody Tent also hosts concerts and festivals each year.
Did you know: Yarmouth was once home to the Cape Cod Coliseum which attracted music juggernauts like the Grateful Dead (1979), Aerosmith (1974) and Van Halen (1980) to play there!
