More than 20 of the Cape’s most talented musicians and performers will come together once again to spread holiday cheer and embrace the spirit of the season as part of the 16th Annual Cape Cod Christmas Cavalcade for the Homeless.
“It fills me with the Christmas spirit. It really does. Seeing all these musicians in one place and seeing people that come every year, it has become such a community event and a wonderful time to celebrate the music and arts scene on Cape Cod and give back a little bit.” – Cavalcade Organizer Fred Boak
Scheduled for Sunday, December 15, at 7 pm at the Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, the holiday concert raises funds to support our programs that ensure all have access to safe, secure housing on Cape Cod and the Islands. Last year’s event raised nearly $12,000 for Housing Assistance.
This year’s lineup includes the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, The Ticks, Fred Fried, Catie Flynn, Scream Along with Billy, Ding Donnelly & Danny Deveraux, Santa Sax in Training, Kim Moberg, Kristin Knowles, and more.

Fred Boak, who sings in the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, has participated in the event for 15 of the last 16 years. “It fills me with the Christmas spirit. It really does,” said Boak, who has assumed responsibilities for organizing the event from its founder Chandler Travis. “Seeing all these musicians in one place and seeing people that come every year, it has become such a community event and a wonderful time to celebrate the music and arts scene on Cape Cod and to give back a little bit.”
Along with raising funds for our programs, organizers will be collecting hats and gloves for our region’s homeless.
Tickets, which are $25 per person, can be purchased by clicking the button below or paying at the door. Organizers will also be collecting hats, mittens, and coats which will go to keep our most vulnerable clients warm this winter.
