The Festival of Wreaths is the NHA’s kickoff celebration of the holiday season! This community-driven event features an array of beautifully crafted wreaths made by islanders, local businesses, non-profits, schools, and organizations. From traditionally decorated greens to unconventional arrangements, the Festival of Wreaths truly captures the creativity of Nantucketers!
Visitors, on-site and remote, can bid on their favorite wreaths in an online auction to benefit the NHA’s year-round outreach efforts.
