Winter Lights on Cape Ann

Celebrate the spirit of the season with spectacular light displays in Gloucester, Essex, Ipswich, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport.

Thank you to all who celebrated the spirit of the holidays with us during the 4th Annual Winter Lights on Cape Ann!

Local businesses throughout Gloucester, Essex, Ipswich, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport are getting into the festive spirit by decorating their storefronts with twinkling lights and creative window displays! Over 100 lighted locations help bring joy to all those who visit from Small Business Saturday on through New Year’s Day each year.

Back this year, by popular demand, was a decorating contest! People picked their favorite decorated businesses in each of the five participating communities for a chance to win a prize! Voting was live through January 1st and will start again on Small Business Saturday, November 30, 2024!

The 2023 Winter Lights on Cape Ann Contest Winners were:

1st Place: Prince Insurance Agency

2nd Place: RKPT WKNDR

3rd Place: Yellow Sub Shop

A lucky voter has been drawn and will be awarded a $50 Greater Cape Ann Gift Check to enjoy at more than 150 local businesses!

We look forward to your visit to this magical coastal community! Winter Lights on Cape Ann is brought to you annually by Discover Gloucester and the Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce.
