August Fête

Thank you for supporting the 2018
August Fête!

Information on 2019 coming in the new year.


The  August Fête, one of the summer’s most memorable evenings, is more than a party—it is a celebration of Nantucket’s architecture and neighborhoods.  Event attendees will tour historic island houses in the School Street neighborhood and enjoy an outdoor tented reception at the Old Schoolmaster’s House (3 Charter Street) with delicious, hearty hors d’oeuvres and raw bar provided by Nantucket Catering Company, live music by the Shep Cats, and a unique Sense of Place Exhibition / silent auction featuring work by island artists and artisans.
