From early April to mid-May, over three million daffodils of every color, shape and size will bloom on Nantucket. This blossoming, and the arrival of spring itself, is the focal point of celebration duringÂ Daffodil Festival Weekend. This year the festival will take place over the weekend of April 26-28. The Festival's grand event is the Antique Car Parade, which featuresÂ more thanÂ 100 antique cars (decorated with daffodils, of course!) After winding through town and across the island to the charming village of Siasconset, participants join residents and visitors for the Daffodil Tailgate Picnic. This Ã¢Â€ÂœNantucket-StyleÃ¢Â€Â tailgate picnic showcases traditional New England fare ranging from gourmet meals served on fine china to boxed lunches and burgers.
Other Daffodil Festival Weekend highlights include the Nantucket Garden Club's Daffodil Show, The Annual Daffy Dog Parade, Children's Daffodil Parade, and The Daffy Hat Pageant. Click here for packages.
