Festival of Wreaths

Festival of Wreaths 2020 

The Festival of Wreaths is the NHA’s kickoff celebration for the holiday season! This community event features an array of wreaths beautifully crafted by local businesses, non-profits, schools, and organizations that are displayed 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. From traditionally decorated greens to unconventional materials, all of the Festival of Wreaths entries capture the creativity of Nantucketers!

To ensure the safety of our visitors and the community the Festival of Wreaths will be slightly adjusted to adhere to safety protocols and allow for more viewing time for visitors. No Preview Party will be held. All bidding on wreaths will be held online for safe and touch-free bidding with easy to access QR codes next to each wreath.

Monday, November 9–Monday, November 23. 
On display in the Whaling Museum McCausland Gallery.
Viewing hours to be determined.

The Festival of Wreaths will be FREE to the year-round community thanks to the generous support our lead sponsor, Marine Home Center.
