Every year during the first weekend of December, Nantucket businesses, merchants, local artists, non-profit organizations, and community members welcome the holiday season in one of the most anticipated island celebrations, Nantucket's Christmas Stroll. This year's Christmas Stroll weekend will be held December 2-4th.

Partake in the festivities by dressing up in your fanciest Stroll outfit or your coziest holiday sweater and head to town.. Support local businesses by picking up a gift and crossing items off your shopping list. And of course, you don't want to miss Santa Claus as he arrives (in true Nantucket fashion) by Coast Guard vessel, then makes his way from Straight Wharf to Main Street.
