    Christmas Stroll on Nantucket

    2013 Christmas Stroll on Nantucket

    The holiday season is upon us once again and here on Nantucket, a sure sign of Christmas is the annual Nantucket Christmas Stroll (2013: Dec. 6-8). Now in its 40th year, the Stroll was initially organized as an effort to keep locals from going off the island to get their holiday shopping done. What started as a three hour event with late closing times for local shops and businesses has since turned into a cherished holiday tradition encompassing the entire weekend.

    The holiday season starts off the weekend after Thanksgiving with the lighting of 100 Christmas trees all along Main Street, accompanied by local choirs and carolers singing traditional Christmas songs. The Christmas Stroll on Nantucket begins the following weekend, which is the first weekend of December. The annual event features a charming open air, European-style Advent market where Christmas truly comes alive as shoppers walk around taking in the sights, and perhaps being tempted by the smells of hot food and refreshments wafting through the cold, crisp air. Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Santa Claus, who arrives via a Coast Guard boat to kick off the festivities. His arrival is heralded by the Town Crier, and Santa sets up shop at the historic Jared Coffin House to visit with the children and receive their Christmas wishes. Naturally, it goes without saying that local businesses, shops, and restaurants all get in on the festivities, offering up various holiday specials.

    This year, the Stroll embraces a Victorian theme, including a Victorian Costume Contest held on Saturday, Dec. 7. All visitors are encouraged to participate and help bring that much more Dickensian flair to the season. To cap things off, there will be a community sing-along with Nantucket’s renowned Victorian Carolers.

    With such wonderful festivities all around us, we here at Nantucket Brand are proud to be part of the tradition in our own way, offering many special holiday products. Be sure stop by our downtown store at 10 Federal Street and see our latest clothing styles and find some holiday decor. Whether you want to add some flair around your tree with our needlepoint Christmas tree skirt, decorate with our pewter Christmas ornaments, or entertain guests in style with Christmas-themed placemats, we’ve got just the item for you! So if you’re in the area, we hope you’ll come visit us! From all of us here at Nantucket Brand, we hope your holidays are truly magical.

  • Christmas Stroll Weekend on Nantucket

    Today is the start of Christmas Stroll Weekend on Nantucket. The 38th Stroll will run from Friday, December 2 through Sunday, December 4. Although Nantucket is certainly quieter in the winter months, this weekend is a sure exception as it is one of the busiest weekends of the year in downtown Nantucket.

    Christmas Stroll is a great time to walk around down town and do some shopping. All the store windows are decorated as the Nantucket Chamber runs a window contest to ensure town is fit for the holidays. Stroll also includes the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday.

    If you're on Nantucket, be sure to stop by our two stores downtown. The Nantucket Brand store is at 33 Main Street at the corner of Main and Federal. The Emporium of Nantucket is located just a few buildings down at 10 Federal Street across from the Post Office. Outside of town, you can also stop by and visit The Emporium of Nantucket Home Center at 54 Old South Road, which is about halfway between the rotary and the airport across from Lover's Lane.

    For more information about Stroll Weekend and all the activities, check the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce site.

    Nantucket Christmas Stroll 2010

    We had another busy Christmas Stroll on Nantucket this year. Plenty of people were out to enjoy the holiday festivities. There were carolers, bell ringers, a visit from Santa himself, and even a Flash Mob right on historic cobblestoned Main Street.

    We took a few photos of Main Street during the day. Unfortunately, the camera battery died so we didn't get too many. We'll try to track down a few more.
