Nantucket Daffodil Festival


43rd Annual Nantucket Daffodil Festival

April 28-30,2017

Our 43rd annual Daffodil Festival Weekend promises to banish your winter “doldrums” as the island pays homage to a bold and brilliant bloom. From early April to mid-May, a plethora of daffodils encompassing every hue, shape and size burst forth across the island, adorning roadsides, gardens, and window boxes.  This beloved event is a jubilant homage to the advent of Spring, and features an Antique Car Parade & Tailgate Picnic, Children’s Beach Family Picnic, and more.  Humans and hounds “strut their stuff” for coveted awards at the wacky and whimsical Daffy Hat and Daffy Dog Parade, while little tykes star in their own procession, decorating bikes and wheeled conveyances Daffy-style.
