The Delights of the Daffodil Season

2022 Schedule

Brewster in Bloom
April 29 - May 1, 2022

Nantucket Daffodil Festival
April 22 - April 24, 2022

The Cape and Islands offer a special destination in the springtime, too!

Beginning with the crocuses, spring flowering bulbs poke their colorful heads up out of the ground during late March. By early April there will be a riotous explosion of color with the daffodil front and center. Two major celebrations of the daffodil are held in late April/May in Brewster on the Cape and in April on Nantucket Island.

Brewster in Bloom

Brewster in Bloom weekend this year will be April 29 - May 1, 2022. This annual event kicks off with the Brewster Band in concert at the Brewster Baptist Church. Throughout the weekend you can enjoy an arts fair and craft show, virtual artisans showcase, road race, and lawn display contest. Don’t miss Sunday’s grand parade, "Honoring Hometown Heroes" at 1:00 down Brewster's Main Street. For more information, visit the Brewster in Bloom website. Find a nearby beautiful Cape Cod rental in Brewster and the surrounding areas on for the weekend.

Nantucket's Annual Daffodil Festival

In early May, over three million daffodils of every color, shape and size will bloom on Nantucket Island. This blossoming, as well as the advent of spring itself, is the focal point of the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Daffodil Festival being celebrated the weekend of April 22 - April 24, 2022.

Need a place to stay for the weekend? Many of our Nantucket homes offer weekend rates in the spring.

Originated by the late Jean MacAusland, a summer resident of Nantucket and former publisher of Gourmet magazine, the weekend has grown into a full-scale celebration of winter’s thaw, joyous for both Islanders and visitors alike. Daffodils adorn the Island’s roadsides, gardens and shop windows with blossoms of yellow, orange, white and even pale pink. The Daffodil Festival’s grand event held on Saturday is the Annual Antique Car Parade, featuring over 100 daffodil-bedecked antique cars. Other highlights include the Daffy Dog Parade, the Children's Bike Parade, and The Daffy Hat Pageant.
