    The Brewster Gallery Tour

    Fri., Nov. 30 to Sun., Dec. 2

    This Christmas season, nearly two dozen galleries, most of them located along historic Route 6A in Brewster, are collaborating for a holiday Brewster Gallery Stroll.

    When you see so many unique and intimate galleries all within a few miles of each other in only one town, it accentuates the extraordinary creativity that makes Cape Cod such a cultural mecca for visitors, second homeowners and full-time residents.

    The diversity and breadth of culture on the Cape are among the most significant reasons people retire on the Cape, alongside access to excellent healthcare.

    The Luxx Concierge has been visiting Brewster’s galleries to discover their individual charms. They not only are wonderful destination this holiday season, but all year long. While some close for the winter months and others have limited hours, we hope you will rely on our Brewster Gallery Tour year-round as you plan the weekend at your second home, a vacation on the Cape or an afternoon of glorious art and maybe brunch or lunch along the way.

    Over the coming months, the Luxx Concierge will be sharing our visits to the individual galleries with profiles of their art and owners. Please email us at concierge@luxxcapecod.com with suggestions for our visits, so we can share them with you and all our members.
