The Story Behind the Cultural Center of Cape Cod
The Cultural Center of Cape Cod resides in what used to be the Bass River Savings Bank. From 2000 to 2007, a group of locals transformed this architectural building to its modern day purpose and saved an almost-forgotten South Yarmouth gem. Now, it provides enthralling entertainment to over 200,000 people annually with the motto “All the Arts for All of Us.”
Make your next date even more special by attending one of the seasonal events at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. From the moment you walk into the Center, you’ll be delighted by the contemporary design and modern features. You’re sure to have an amazing time when you attend a live performance or gallery show!
If you want to try something different, attend a cooking class. This favored activity affords you the opportunity to show off your skills and enjoy your deliciously prepared meal with your partner. During the summer season, you’ll experience the freshly pressed bottles of wine from the Cape Cod vineyards at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. And, an instructor will teach you how to correctly pair wine with international cuisine.
In addition, you can also plan a custom cooking experience and tailor the menu to your specific requests. It’s the best place for a birthday celebration, corporate retreat, or intimate dinner party. Whatever way you indulge in the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, you’re sure to satisfy your culinary cravings.
Bass River Press
Another program at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod is the Bass River Press. In 2015, this initiative began to support local poets to get their work published. The first winner of the Press Award was On the Loose by Cotuit poet Judith Askew who captured the true art behind this beloved writing form. Before you leave the Center, stop by the gift shop and purchase a copy or keep your eye out for the 2017 Bass River Press publications!
