Nantucket Island Happiness Comes In Waves

On land and sea, Nantucket teems with festivals and fetes in the sultry summer months. The celebration begins on July 3 with Independence Day fireworks at Jetties Beach, followed by traditional Main Street activities (and a wild water fight!) on the fourth. Follow your quest for nirvana at the Nantucket Yoga Festival (July 7-9) featuring beach meditation and workshops. The Nantucket Comedy Festival (July 12–15) graces our shores with Jeff Foxworthy, a Comedy smACKdown, and Stand Up & Learn for kids.

Aficionados of vintage and modern folk art and antiques will revel in the eclectic offerings at the Nantucket Art & Artisans Show (July 13). Unleash your inner artiste at the family-friendly Sandcastle Contest (July 22) as teams vie to sculpt the most unique seaside masterpiece on Jetties Beach. On August 12, The Beach Boys (apropos!) join Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops for a night of music and fireworks at Jetties Beach. For lovers of all things nautical, regattas, ceremonies, and parties abound during Nantucket Race Week (August 12-20) and the Opera House Cup (August 20) which celebrates traditional wooden boats and modern sloops. A true summer highlight, the Tim Russert Summer Groove (August 19) attracts locals and visitors alike for a glittering night of dining and dancing to benefit the Boys & Girls Club.

Join us for a sizzling summer season!!
