Events

Christmas in Nantucket Town

Christmas Stroll

A much-loved winter warmer, held over a weekend in early December. Carolers, Santas, markets and more, plus the cobbled streets looking pretty as a picture.
Film in Nantucket Town

Nantucket Film Festival

A good time to spot celebrities. It focuses on the art of screenwriting, and is held in mid- to late June.
Fireworks in Nantucket Town

Independence Day Celebration

At high noon on July 4th, island firefighters duke it out – the hook and ladder trucks versus the fire pumpers. You will get wet. Fireworks are staged at night; the best place to view them is Jetties Beach.
Cultural in Nantucket Town

Daffodil Festival

The island goes yellow in the last weekend of April with three million blooms, plus art shows, tours and exhibitions. A highlight is the antique car parade that makes its way to 'Sconset for a tailgate picnic.
