september on nantucket

Who says there is nothing to do on Nantucket outside of July and August? In fact, there is so much to do, its hard to pick between partaking in an activity or relaxing at the beach after the busy summer. September is a great month to try something new. How about seeing a Theatre Workshop of Nantucket play at Bennett Hall or taking a bird walk with the Linda Loring Nature Foundation out on Eel Point Road?

Visiting Nantucket for a wedding or the Nantucket Project in September? Find some time to spend outside as our Indian Summer continues, there is gorgeous weather in the forcast. Our island has so much to offer in Funtember™!

If this calendar entices you to come for a visit, reach out to a Fisher Agent who will help book your Nantucket rental. We take last minute requests and some homeowners are flexible with shortening the week minimum stay if you would like to come for a long weekend.

*Please note the Island Fair has been cancelled this year, but is scheduled to return in 2019. There is also no Maritime Festival this year.
