  • Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year, and Nantucket is rapidly transforming into a Holiday Wonderland! With Christmas Trees being put up, and sales going on, restaurants are offering nightly specials and everyone is getting their shopping lists together! Thanksgiving on Nantucket involved Red Tickets and feasts and everything in between with all island traditions 30 miles out to sea!

    Postponed until Friday, November 23rd! 
    The Nantucket Atheneum Cold Turkey Plunge on November 23rd, the day after Thanksgiving morning! 

    Every year, hundreds of swimmers and spectators will gather on Children's Beach to plunge into the freezing cold harbor in an effort to raise money so that the Nantucket community can enjoy free programs at the Weezie Center (the children's library) all year long! You can pledge now, join a team or make a donation!
