Nantucket is the perfect place to spend Christmas.

The Nantucket Christmas Stroll weekend is the perfect place to take the special ambience in while enjoying the holiday festivities.

What Is Christmas Stroll Weekend?

The Nantucket Christmas Stroll Weekend has been running for 42 years and includes many great events over a three day period. This event is perfect for the whole family with entertainment for both children and adults. Every day will have its own list of special events happening throughout town, giving you plenty of chances to enjoy the festive spirit.

Friday will also include a Christmas Stroll Dinner at Breeze with holiday music and an a la carte menu. Finish out the day with The Raven's Night Walk, strolling down the haunted streets of Nantucket and visiting haunted houses along the way; this is perfect for lovers of all things spooky.

On Saturday, Santa will arrive at 12:15 p.m. at Straight Wharf. Watch Santa pull in on the Coast Guard cutter, boarding his special sea sleigh.
