With the on-going pandemic, we feel it is important to keep you updated with information about our in-person event, Crop on the Cape. We will be updating this page as things change. Please check back when you have questions.
November, 9, 2020
We want to provide an update on the status of the Crop on the Cape 2021 event. As you may know, due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Massachusetts state regulations, we canceled the 2020 event.
Planning for Crop on the Cape begins many months before we all get together for our weekend of creativity and socializing. Normally, by this point in the fall, we’ve finalized classes with our teachers, signed up vendors, updated our website, and are ready to open event registration by early November. But the pandemic has changed everything.
We’ve been waiting and hoping that the pandemic would subside to a point where state regulations would change and allow us to hold an in-person event the size of the Crop on the Cape event. However, as of November 2nd, the policy in Massachusetts is that indoor gatherings at all venues and locations are limited to 25 people. With the number of new Covid cases rising again in our region, it seems highly unlikely that the state will ease these restrictions any time soon. Taking this into account and recognizing that we’ve run out of time to adequately plan for the March 2021 event, we have decided to postpone Crop on the Cape until March 2022. Save the date: March 17-20, 2022. We find this just as disappointing as you do and sincerely hope you understand.
If you are saying to yourself, “I already paid for the 2020 Crop on the Cape. What happens now?” We had applied your 2020 registration fee to the 2021 event but since we are now postponing this event, we are offering the following two options:
Option 1: We can put your Crop on the Cape 2020 registration fee towards the 2022 event. This will guarantee that you will receive the same package you purchased for the 2020 event at the 2022 event.
Option 2: We can refund your Crop on the Cape 2020 registration fee. (The PayPal transaction fee will be deducted from your refund as stated in our policy.) Choosing option 2 does not guarantee you a seat at the March 2022 event. When registration opens for the 2022 event, you will need to register again just as you normally would.
We will need to hear from you with your choice, either option 1 or option 2, by December 31, 2020. Please let us know your choice by filling out this form.
Why not just postpone the 2021 event to later in the year?
There are many reasons why we are unable to do this, one being that the Hyannis Resort & Conference Center is booked solid with other events.
Will there be a virtual Crop on the Cape in 2021?
We are excited to announce that we are planning for a fun virtual Crop on the Cape to take place on March 18-21st, 2021. Stay tuned for more information about this virtual event. Everyone who was registered for Crop on the Cape 2020 will have early access to registration for this virtual event. We hope to have more details soon and will notify you via our email newsletter.
What about the classes I signed up to attend in 2020?
We have already taken care of refunds and/or kits for classes that were supposed to be held in March 2020.
What if I ordered a t-shirt and asked you to hold it for me until the next event?
We can continue to hold it, we can ship it to you now at your cost, or, if you choose to attend the virtual Crop on the Cape, we can ship it to you with your other goodies.
What about my massage appointment?
If you had scheduled a massage for the 2020 event, we plan on keeping the same day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and time you booked for the 2022 event. You won’t have to re-book your appointment(s) unless you get a refund for your registration.

We want to thank you all for understanding the tough decisions we have had to make this year. Coronavirus has affected everyone and made us all have to be a little more flexible than we planned, but on the flip side, it has encouraged us to be creative and inspired us to still create and get together “virtually” whenever we can.
