{fall} in love with local!

Our main feature is a call to action. We founded LoveLiveLocal on the belief that Cape Cod is an incredible place to build a life and our passion is sharing all that is special about it in order to contribute to its evolution. Shopping locally first is an easy and important way that we can all make a difference, especially heading into holiday season. We’re going to begin breaking down some of the misperceptions that lead people to go big box and why it all matters, beginning with this issue.

We’re not the only ones committed to creating the Cape we want to live in, and that inspires us. Read about the first annual Vinegrass Festival taking place this weekend in Truro – unique events like this shine a light on our cultural scene while supporting local students and preserving musical traditions.

Did you miss out on the summer theatre season? There’s a chance to re-visit the best musical performances thanks to the Cape Cod Theatre Coalition’s seasonal highlights celebration.

Continuing on with the event news, we love that there’s a new surf film fest happening this month. We know that many of you live to run so if you don’t know about these two super fun 5ks for charity, you’ll want in for sure. An American literary legend made Cape Cod his local for many years – celebrate him in October.
