Yarmouth Summer Celebration 2016: It’s back and better than ever!

The 6th annual Yarmouth Summer Celebration returns to Cape Cod on Friday June 24th with the spectacular Friday Night Fireworks over Nantucket Sound, and visitors to Blue Water and Riviera Beach Resort will have a front row seat to the display! You’ll be able to see them from Red Jacket Beach Resort, and all along the beaches of South Shore Drive. Join us as we kick off Summer 2016 with a full week of fun, family friendly events designed for locals and visitors to celebrate the very best of Yarmouth and summer on Cape Cod!

Book Your Stay

Red Jacket Resorts is offering a Yarmouth Summer Celebration Package our three South Yarmouth beach resorts! The package includes complimentary breakfast daily and is valid from 6/24/16 – 6/30/16. Offer code: KICKOFF

All of your favorite events will be back, like the Ice Cream Social and the Summer Beach BBQ, and new events have been added. Most of the events take place at Bass River Beach (aka Smuggler’s Beach) which is just next door to Riviera and Blue Water.

As in past years the Yarmouth Summer Celebration Sand Sculptures will be built during the week of the event, so you can visit the sites all around town and watch the sand sculpture artists as they create these amazing pieces of artwork! Red Jacket Resorts will sponsor two sculptures, one at Blue Water Resort and the other at Blue Rock Golf Course. We also sponsor a larger sculpture at the Y-D Red Sox Field, so if you’re lucky enough to see one of the Cape Cod Baseball League games taking place during the event, be sure to stop by and see this year’s creation!
