“Where the treetops glisten and children listen…”

The Festival of Trees is the NHA’s highly anticipated holiday tradition that begins during Nantucket’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!

Festival of Trees Chairs Beth English and Mark Donato

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.

Thank you to Nantucket Tilemakers for creating our 25th anniversary commemorative ornament.  Nantucket TileMakers has created hand-crafted tiles, decorative pieces, tables and window panels in ceramic and glass. Upholding the historic tradition of women-owned businesses on the island, our studio produces its own lines of tiles, including Island Icons and Signal Flags, but specializes in totally unique custom designs for discerning clients. 

By purchasing a leadership ticket at the Silver Anniversary level, and any of the Angel levels, you will recieve this specially designed ornament.
