Orleans Cultural District

Orleans Cultural District

Anchored by the Old Firehouse and Parish Park, the Orleans Village Center Cultural District is a walkable network of attractions starting with Theresa’s Way and extending through a necklace of pocket parks, public spaces, greenbelts, and vistas. Maritime heritage meets modern hospitality, art galleries and boutiques line the pathways, and iconic shops are around every corner. History lives on in Orleans—in the Federated church dating to 1639, militia encampments celebrating the Battle of Rock Harbor from the War of 1812, and in “pulling boats” re-enacting the Cape’s first canal through Jeremiah’s Gutter. Catboats flourish on Town Cove and Pleasant Bay, sailing out of Orleans Yacht Club, Namequoit Sailing Association, and Nauset Marine, supported by wooden boat-builders such as Arey’s Pond Boat Yard and Pleasant Bay Boat and Spar. Performing arts, entertainment, lifetime learning, and countless recreational opportunities beckon year-round at the Academy Playhouse and School. And community celebrations abound, including “Spring into Summer” in May, Orleans Heritage Month in August—which culminates with a performance by the Orleans Pops featuring the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, “Celebrate Our Waters” in September, Ukulele Cabaret and Plein Air painters during “Capture the Cape,” in October, and much more.
