• Nantucket Noel

    November 27 - December 31, 2020

  • NANTUCKET CHAMBER RE-IMAGINES NANTUCKET NOEL  
    47th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS STROLL POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

     

  • With community safety as its top priority, the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce has reimagined its celebration of the holidays this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 47th Annual Christmas Stroll has been postponed until 2021. In its place, Nantucket Noel, a shop local initiative, will run from 27 November through 31 December 2020, allowing Nantucket’s residents to safely enjoy the magic of the season, while still supporting local businesses for their holiday shopping no matter where they are!

  • What's On This Page:

    Nantucket Christmas Tree Lighting, Red Ticket Program, All Nantucket Noel Experiences like Zooming With & Writing To Santa, Sharing Memories & History, Ugly Sweater Contest, Nantucket Noel Sponsors, Nantucket Noel's Month-Long Program, and more!


  • The Nantucket Chamber communications will echo Governor Charlie Baker’s My Local initiative messaging encouraging island residents to patronize local enterprises which will be, this year more than ever, particularly vital.

    Island businesses serving the public which choose to remain open during the 2020 holiday season will operate in full accordance with the Commonwealth’s public health directives, protocols, and guidance. All restaurants will operate with limited capacity as dictated by public health directives; bars will remain shuttered and all other businesses will operate by implementing statewide standards of sanitation, social distancing and reinforce face coverings.

    Nantucket has made great progress to slow the spread of COVID-19 and gradually re-open the economy, and we all have a responsibility to keep transmission levels as low as possible. All visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, who do not meet an exemption, are required to complete the Massachusetts Travel Form.

    The Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce looks forward to celebrating the Nantucket Noel season with you. This allows Nantucket’s residents, visitors, and enthusiasts to safely enjoy the magic of the holiday season virtually, while still supporting local businesses for their holiday shopping.
