The Nantucket Daffodil Festival was originally begun by the Nantucket Garden Club and dates back to 1974. Since that time, the event has organically grown into a spring festival sponsored and organized by the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce. This is a wonderful weekend celebration announcing that spring has sprung on the island as evidenced by the thousands of daffodils bursting and bobbing on alongside the highways and byways of the island.
The main attraction of the weekend is the annual Antique Car Parade, which is held on Saturday and features over 100 vintage cars decorated in themes from bumper to bumper in daffodils. The parade travels through Town, making its way along the Milestone Road to the quaint village of ‘Sconset. Once there, a tailgate picnic is enjoyed by all as the streets are lined with picnic fare. Other festival highlights include the Nantucket Garden Club’s Annual Daffodil Show, Children’s Daffodil Parade, Daffy Hat Pageant, Daffodil Dog Parade and even a Daffodil 5K Race. New events this year, include a picnic and a free concert at Children’s Beach, with rides available in an antique fire truck, and a Daffodil non-profit market downtown.

It has been calculated that this year 1 in 88 children will be diagnosed with Autism, which means every 11 minutes, someone will be diagnosed. The Center for Disease Control is calling it an epidemic, and some liken it to the Polio epidemic of the 50′s. This coming Tuesday, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, and in recognition of families touched by Autism, international iconic landmarks will shine a blue light throughout the night of April 2nd. On Nantucket, we are asking the community to wear blue. You can also decorate your office or classroom with blue Christmas tree lights, available at Marine Home Center.
Windwalker Real Estate is proud to participate in this important event.

Nantucket is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. You can enjoy whale watching and seal watching tours, jogging and walking paths that circle the island, and — of course –sport fishing by boat or from the beach . When you’re residing in your summer rental on Nantucket, one activity you won’t want to miss out on are one of the island’s chartered fishing tours. Island fishing charter companies will lead you out to the area waters where the fish are biting, provide you with the rods and tackle and let you enjoy a day out on the sea catching what could be your dinner that night.
Nantucket fishing charters are typically half day adventures, the perfect way to break up your time spent at your Nantucket house rental. The waters are ideal for catching striped bass and bluefish and other species in season. and chartered fishing tours maintain an intimate on-board environment — most only accept up to five people, so you won’t be fumbling over fellow fishermen on the boat.
If you prefer to spend your days out on the water, this is a perfect family outing — just don’t forget to bring sunscreen, your sunglasses and dress appropriately!
