The first weekend of December is upon us, and towns and organizations all over the Cape are ready to celebrate the holidays. Here's your Weekend Outlook.

This looks like the busiest weekend of the month, with all kinds of festivals and events happening. Here's a listing.

Besides Christmas, the winter solstice is also coming up, and there’s a medieval festival on Saturday night in Sandwich that marks that event. More info.

There are many chances to see “The Nutcracker” ballet at this time of year, but a show on Martha’s Vineyard has a very different way of approaching that story. More info. 

Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll discuss upcoming events every Wednesday on All Things Considered. This week's conversation is posted below - give it a listen.
