Upcoming Events

Scallopers Ball

September 28, 2018:  6:30pm-11pm

The Nantucket Scalloper's Ball, a unique community event, takes place in early fall every year at the Nantucket Yacht Club.  Sponsored by the Nantucket Shellfish Association, it celebrates the start of scalloping season with a rousing party.  There is good company, a silent auction, lively music and dancing, and best of all ... loads of delicious seafood provided by the local fisheries.


The Scalloper's Ball is open to the public, but tickets to this sell-out-event should be purchased well in advance.  Membership in the Nantucket Shellfish Association entitles one to pre-purchase tickets for personal use before they go on sale to the public.
