President Biden Visits Nantucket for Thanksgiving Holiday


Around The Office

president biden visits nantucket

President Biden arrives Tuesday evening, November 23rd, 2021 with his family for his annual Thanksgiving trip to Nantucket Island. Thanks to keen investigative reporting from Jason Grazadei at the Nantucket Current, the Island and world-at-large has been able to follow along on the arrival of his security apparatus. We at Fisher have enjoyed seeing the secret service around town and hope for another meeting outside our office on Friday, when he typically walks around town to meet and greet before the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Main Street.

“The Bidens are expected to arrive on the island tomorrow, touching down sometime after 6 p.m. Due to the small size of the island’s airport, the Bidens will likely not be arriving in the Air Force Boeing 747 that is traditionally used as Air Force One, but rather a smaller aircraft. Technically, any Air Force aircraft carrying the U.S. President is considered Air Force One.

Despite the massive security apparatus and traveling White House personnel that will accompany the Bidens to Nantucket this week, at least some of the family’s island holiday traditions are expected to continue. Their Thanksgiving dinner will almost certainly be cooked by Bill Puder at Faregrounds restaurant, who has prepared the holiday meal for the Bidens dozens of times over the years. Sources told the Current that Biden is also expected to once again attend the annual Christmas tree lighting event on Main Street this Friday, and potentially Catholic mass at the St. Mary church on Federal Street on Saturday.”
