Events This Weekend: Island Cup!

Halloween is just around the corner which means lots of spooky events are coming up (stay tuned for our Nantucket Halloween Guide coming to the blog tomorrow!), but until then there are a few other fun events this weekend to look forward to. Fall is in full swing here on Nantucket – one of the best times of year if you ask us. Time for a little self care, relaxation, and last but not least, FUN! Coming up this weekend:


Fall Open Mic Night

Thursday, 10/24, 7pm

As you may remember from last year, Open Mic Night at the Nantucket Culinary Center is a fantastic way to spend an evening in the off-season. This Fall, they are bringing it back once a month, starting tonight! Head over to 22 Federal Street tonight for the event (all manner of performances welcome!) with cash bar and food menu to keep your taste buds satisfied. Starting in January, Open Mic Night is a weekly occurrence – see you there!


Saltmarsh Senior Center Yard Sale

Saturday, 10/26, 9am – 1pm

This Saturday, head to the Saltmarsh Senior Center at 81 Washington Street Ext. for their Annual Yard Sale. In addition to helping fund programs for Nantucket’s Senior Citizens, you’re sure to stumble across some good finds.

Restorative Yoga Workshop

Saturday, 10/26, 1pm – 3pm

After the yard sale, treat yourself to a relaxing workshop with Dharma Yoga Nantucket. This Saturday, they are offering a Restorative Yoga Workshop with Live Sound Healing in order to release stress and tension. In other words, exactly what we need after a long summer! Reservations are required for this event, sign up here.

Island Cup

Saturday, 10/26, 1:30pm

If you’re interested in venturing off-island this weekend, think about heading to Martha’s Vineyard for the Annual Island Cup football game. This island rivalry runs deep, and both sides go all out for the sake of school spirit. Take the ferry to the Vineyard this Saturday and show your Whaler Pride! (Or if you’re staying on island for the other events, greet the team when they come home!)

Last but not least, Hazardous Waste Day is Saturday 10/26 from 9am – 1pm. Take advantage and dispose of hazardous chemicals responsibly!
