A Look Ahead into Nantucket’s Robust Calendar of Events in 2024…

From tried and true traditions like the Boston Pops, to new festivals like the New Moon Fest, and off-season Fisher favorites like Oyster Fest and Halloween on Main Street, we’re rounding them all up for your calendar. There have been some big changes this year including Nantucket by Design moving to July and The Nantucket Project moving to September. Our helpful links to purchase tickets to fundraisers will ensure you don’t miss out – almost ALL of these events sell out in advance!

Check back throughout the year as we add more things to do on Nantucket. If you have something to add, please email marketing@fishernantucket.com.
