Big Friends

We invite you to become a Big Friend of the Nantucket Art & Artisan Show. This collaborative event is the leading fundraiser for Small Friends on Nantucket whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for families and meet the needs of working parents by providing the highest quality early education and care for the children of Nantucket year round.

The show begins with The Preview Party: An Evening Under the Sea on Thursday, July 13, 6-8 pm: Featuring Crafts, Cocktails, Canapes and the creation of our Community Canvas, and continues through Sunday, July 16. We are happy to be returning to 61 Sparks Avenue, Nantucket, MA (at the Nantucket Boys and Girls Club) this year.

The Nantucket Art & Artisan show is a celebration of all things handmade, featuring over 60 local and nationally recognized artisans and highlighting both traditional and modern day techniques- pottery, glass, textiles, folk art, photography, jewelry, sculpture, furniture, antiques, vintage and repurposed items, and more.

Your Big Friend $500 donation to Small Friends will ensure that our show will be a great success!
