Nantucket Noel 2024: November 1 - December 31, 2024

Nantucket Noel truly is the most wonderful time of the year on our island 30 miles out to sea. The joy of the holidays on Nantucket encompasses this magical time on island. From our community Tree Lighting Ceremony and Annual Christmas Stroll, to the Red Ticket Drawing and more, we do the holidays right!

2023 Christmas Stroll Program

The Chamber's 50th Nantucket Stroll Weekend will be December 6th - December 8th, 2024.

Santa's Arrival, Free Live Entertainment, and the Christmas Stroll Marketplace details can be found HERE.

Now in its 50th year, the island’s world-renowned signature event lovingly dubbed “Stroll” takes place the weekend of December 6th to December 8th, featuring the eagerly anticipated arrival of Santa via his nautical “sleigh” at noon on Saturday. A host of holiday activities, including strolling carolers in Victorian garb, the Magical Talking Tree, craft shows, a European-style Christmas Marketplace and more guarantee fun for the entire family.

Please note that two rows in the downtown Stop & Shop parking lot will be closed from the afternoon of December 6th to the evening of December 8th.  The Stroll Marketplace will be open Saturday, December 7th, 10am-3pm.

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Community Caroling


On the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 24th at 4PM we kick off our Annual Tree Lighting & Community Caroling Ceremony presented by Stop & Shop. Enjoy the beauty of Nantucket as we prepare for this one-of-a-kind holiday season. Over 150 trees will magically come alive in a blaze of light. Musical performances by The Accidentals and Naturals.

Please note that Main Street will be closed from 12-6pm.

On December 24th, 6 lucky winners of $1,000, and 1 extra-lucky winner of $5,000 will be chosen at random from the multitude of tickets.

You must be present to win. The Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce will endeavor to have checks ready for the winners by the second week of January.
