The 2012 Maritime Festival took place on Saturday, September 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Children’s Beach, Brant Point and the Town Pier. The purpose of the Maritime Festival is to celebrate the joy of living on an island and to experience time-honored maritime activities on and beside the sea that surrounds it.
The festival will be packed with free activities for the whole family, on the water, beach and grass: boat races, shucking contests, entertainment by local musical groups, art projects and beach games are just a few of the programs that will be offered by Nantucket’s non-profit organizations. Food will be available for purchase from the ACK Shack, Raw Bar by Nantucket Seafood, and the Sons of American Legion.
