Spring is officially “sproinging” and that means it’s time for Nantucket Daffodil Festival 2019! Come get Daffy in Nantucket with a weekend jam-packed full of fun, springtime events: April 26th through the 28th, 2019.
Nantucket Daffodil Festival celebrates the return of spring every year with a cornucopia of special events. The weekend sees flower shows (natch), art shows, car shows, tours, parades, picnics, and so very much more.
It all began in the mid 1970’s with a classic car parade and community tailgate picnic. Two events that are still a part of the much larger celebrations of today.
In fact, there are so many fun things to do and see during the festival that we only have room to list a few highlights!
