    Here are the events that the Chamber has planned for 2015!

     

    SATURDAY- DEC. 3 

     

    9AM-3PM STROLL SCAVENGER HUNT.  Pick up your Stroll Scavenger Hunt 20-question brochure at the Chamber of Commerce Office, 0 Main Street.  Created by Look Book of Nantucket author Barbara Tibbetts, this is a fun way to learn more about the island.  Teams with the most correct answers will be in the running for a Stroll & Look Book prize package.  Cost to participate: $10/team.

    10AM-3PM NANTUCKET’S OWN CHRISTMAS MARKET!  Europeans celebrate the yuletide season with an Advent market that fills the Town Square.  This is where the romance of Christmas comes alive in grand tradition-the aroma of hot food wafts through the cold air as shoppers pause to enjoy some refreshment, perhaps take part in a game or two and survey crafted gifts and merchandise.  Our community non-profit organizations bring the age old tradition to life in our own version of the Christmas Marketplace.  Foot of Main Street.  Sponsored by the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce,
