Daffodil Festival Weekend is coming up next month on Nantucket, taking place from April 27th through April 29th, 2012. The festival began in 1974 and has grown to become one of the most popular spring events on Nantucket, making it a great time to visit our island.
Over three million daffodils bloom each spring and they are put to good use in brightening Nantucket. Daffodils are used to decorate beautiful antique cars which form a parade starting on Main Street and driving out along the daffodil lined Milestone Road to 'Sconset for a big picnic. Store Fronts in town get in the spirit with daffodil themed window displays. Be on the lookout because you may even see some people who have decorated themselves with flowers!
Other weekend events include the The Annual Daffy Dog Parade, Nantucket Garden Club’s Daffodil Show, Children’s Daffodil Parade and The Daffy Hat Pageant. It's a great time to stroll around town, watch the parade, have a picnic and generally enjoy spring on Nantucket.
If you make it over the island, be sure to stop by our retail stores to do some local shopping on Nantucket. Our stores are sure to be decorated with yellow and green.
