Father's Day falls on June 21 this year. Getting out and doing something special is one way to spend time with Dad. If you live on Nantucket Island, you have plenty to choose from. Book your reservations and make your plans today.
If he likes to read: If literature is your father's thing, check out the Nantucket Book Festival ongoing through 21. Events are going on all weekend. There is a Father's Day Brunch as well as several presentations by noted authors. If brunch is not your thing, how about a picnic on the beach or pig roast? Be sure to catch the sailing event and the cocktail gathering with the authors.
If he likes to laugh: Comedy is on stage at the Nantucket Dreamland Theater on the evening of Father's Day. Daniel Tosh, noted comedian of Tosh 2.0 on Comedy Central, is the headliner. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. for the late night crowd.
If he likes to shop: Want to take in auction action? Visit Rafael's Marketplace at the American Legion Hall. The auction runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with fine furnishings, antiques, and plenty of other valuable items going up on the auction block all day.
If he likes to be active: Can your dad run a mile? Swim a league? Bike a marathon? Then the Nantucket Iron Teams Relay is for you and your dad. This event features six legs of athletic prowess, including running, swimming, paddling, and biking throughout the island. The race finishes at The Muse on Surfside Road where everyone can enjoy good BBQ.
If he likes to rev an engine: If cars are more your Dad's thing, take the ferry to Hyannis and check out the Father's Day Car Show. It is being held on Main Street in downtown Hyannis from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Father's Day. You will see hundreds of classic cars lining the street. You can grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants along Main Street.
If he likes to eat: Brunch anyone? The Nantucket Hotel is serving a special Father's Day brunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in their dining room. Live entertainment will make dining extra special. Share Oysters on the Half Shell or tuck in a Nantucket Omelette. Corned Beef Reubens and Prime Sirloin Burgers are available for those who want a hardier fare.
Spend Father's Day doing what your dad loves. With so much to choose from, there is no reason to stray far. Nantucket Self Storage wishes you and your dad a happy Father’s Day!
