What is the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival's response to COVID-19?

In light of the uncertainty and potential health risks posed by COVID-19, the 24th annual NWF, originally scheduled for May 13-17, 2020 was unfortunately canceled. With the safety of our luminaries and guests at the forefront, we are saddened that we are unable to reschedule for a later date in the fall. Together with our host hotel and longtime partner, the White Elephant, we look forward to welcoming you next May to our island fête. All tickets bought for the 2020 NWF will be pushed to the 2021 festival - at the same rate and with guaranteed placement. We miss you all and appreciate your continued support of the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival.

What is the NWF ticket refund policy?

All tickets to the Nantucket Wine & Food Festival are non-refundable.

How can I find out when additional programming is added?

We add programming on a rolling basis from November through late February. Please join our mailing list to receive festival updates and check back into our website regularly.

Is there an age limit?

All festival events (with the exception of our Junior Top Chef competition) are 21 and older. We love kids, but no children or infants (even in strollers or carriers) are allowed to attend any festival event for the safety of all parties.

How will I receive my tickets?

You will receive an E-ticket for each event that you purchase. All E-tickets have a barcode that will be scanned at the entrance to each event. You may print your ticket or present the barcode on your mobile device. Each ticket can only be scanned once. Please note that for Great Wines in Grand Houses, ticketholders will be emailed one week prior to the festival with the address of your dinner or tasting.
