The Nantucket Daffodil Festival Returns

When: April 22 - 24, 2022

For over 45 years The Nantucket Daffodil Festival has been an island favorite and its highly anticipated return after a 2 year hiatus is a testament to that. The old favorites will return at the center of activities including the always popular classic-car parade followed by the Sconset tailgate picnic, Daffodil Flower Show and Daffy Events held at Children's Beach. 

One of the many reasons that the festival is such a favorite is that after a long winter it’s a great reason to get outside and reconnect with neighbors and the island. There is something for everyone, young and old, families, local and summer residents and weekend visitors can participate at any level. You can choose to enter a car in the parade dressed up in an enthusiastic theme, the Daffodil Flower Show or simply wander among the classic cars on Main Street as a spectator.

Below are some of the major events during the weekend. For more details and other Daffodil Festival events click here.
