The best sunsets in the Harwich area can be seen from Skaket, Rock Harbor and First Encounter Beaches.

During the winter holiday season, there is an annual Harwich Port Stroll featuring a tree lighting, Christmas concert, caroling, carriage rides, arts and crafts sales,  and refreshments served at many of the local participating vendors. There are also performances given by the Cape Cod Theatre Company “Home of Harwich Junior Theatre”.

 

In the summer, Harwich has an Outdoor Summer Concert Series on Monday evenings in Brooks Park, nearHarwich Center. The music spans all genres from rock, blues and country to classical and jazz. These shows are great for the whole family –  pack a blanket and chairs, kick back and enjoy the music.
