An Island tradition since 1996, The Nantucket Wine & Food Festival is known as one of the nation's most celebrated wine and food events. Whether participating as a luminary, sponsor, volunteer, or attendee, people from across the globe flock to the island of Nantucket every spring to be part of this exquisite annual event. The festival engages the island community and embraces the unique island style. We invite you to learn about the various opportunities to get involved and hope that you will join us for our 21st Annual Nantucket Wine & Food Festival.
Proceeds from the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival events have supported island organizations and island non-profits for the past 20 years. Our mission now is to focus on Nantucket Island Youth. With our Culinary Arts Mentoring Program, we provide speakers, visiting chefs, field trips and paid student employment opportunities. The annual NWF Junior Top Chef Competition directly supports the Nantucket High School Culinary Arts Scholarship Fund.
The Nantucket Wine Festival Charitable Foundation is the charitable arm of this annual island festival. We are committed to supporting the Nantucket Island Community, its history and its natural resources. The majority of the festival events are charitable with proceeds benefitting a variety of island non-profits and community organizations each year. We recognize how vital the community and the island itself is to our annual event.
