As a kick of to the holiday season, the festival of wreaths is an anticipated time for residents of and guests coming to Nantucket. An exquisite array of wreaths will be on display, each one handcrafted by members of the Nantucket community. Each wreath is truly a masterpiece—some traditional and others unconventional.
