The Festival of Trees is the NHA’s highly anticipated holiday tradition that kicks off the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce’s Stroll weekend and transforms the Whaling Museum into a festive winter wonderland for the entire month of December! This event features community-crafted trees designed by local merchants, nonprofit organizations, artists and children.

The NHA is extremely grateful for the involvement and support of the many individuals and organizations that contribute to the success of the Festival of Trees. Your creativity and talent make it all possible!

A special thank you to our 2017-2018 Festival of Trees Chairs, Beth English and Mark Donato and our 2018 Festival of Trees Honorary Chair, Kim Corkran.
