Nantucket to Celebrate 20th Annual Festival of Wreaths

NANTUCKET – The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Wreaths.

The Festival of Wreaths is the NHA’s kick-off celebration to the holiday season.

A community tradition, the event features an array of wreaths beautifully crafted by local businesses, nonprofits, schools, organizations, and individuals that are on display during the week of Thanksgiving. Visitors can bid on their favorite wreaths in a silent auction to benefit the NHA’s year-round outreach efforts.

Donald J. Dallaire and David M. Handy have been named the 2018 Festival of Wreaths Chairs.

“We are elated to be kicking off this year’s holiday season by chairing the Festivals of Wreaths,” said Dallaire and Handy.

“It truly is the most magical time of year, bringing together Nantucket’s community to help support one of our most cherished organizations on island. We are looking forward to seeing all of the creative and fabulous wreath designs.”

The silent auction is free to the community and takes place throughout the duration of the festival, providing all attendees the opportunity to visit and revisit their favorite wreaths to increase their bids and their chances of winning. This year the NHA is offering an online bidding option for a small number of wreaths for any supporters that cannot attend. Please check the NHA’s website and social media for more details closer to the Festival of Wreaths.
