• 2022 Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

  • November 24, 2023 - Countdown begins at 4:30pm!

    Nantucket Noel kicks off in person November 24th at the top of Main Street with our Annual Tree Lighting ceremony.

    Over 150 balsam trees lining cobblestoned Main Street and surrounding byways magically illuminate following a dramatic countdown led by our illustrious Town Crier. A chorus of traditional carols ensues, led by Nantucket High School’s popular a cappella group, the Accidentals & Naturals.
    Again this year, we will be live-streaming the ceremony on Facebook, and Instagram! Help us kick-off the 2022 Nantucket Noel festivities no matter where you are!
    Tree decorating will take place between November 25th and November 30th, with judging on Friday, December 1st as part of Nantucket Christmas Stroll
