New Year’s Eve

Ring in 2018 at our Gala New Year’s Eve Snow Ball in the Grand Ballroom at The Nantucket Hotel and enjoy the island of Nantucket at one of the most festive times of the year!

The last five years Nantucket has gone all out with an official, Island-wide celebration for New Year’s and it has been a rousing success! At the center of it all is The Nantucket Hotel, host property for the holiday’s New Year’s Eve Ball.

The video above depicts our first New Year’s Eve Ball, which was a “Great Gatsby” theme.

Our 2017 New Year’s Eve theme is the “Snow Ball”
