The Fair & The Island

Nantucket Island Fair in its long tradition of over 160 years, highlights our home grown edibles and gardens, artisans wares, and local talent. In 1856, the Nantucket Agricultural Society was formed and the first Island Fair was held (in spring). Today, the Fair falls on a mid-September weekend. Come meet and greet your neighbor, enter one of the many contests, and learn more about our community groups. There is fun and entertainment for all ages.
