Hotel Near Annual Halloween Parade & Costume Contest

Join us here at Greydon House for a family-friendly, Nantucket-style Halloween celebration! We’ll supply the boutique luxury and peerless hospitality—and the front-row seats for an All Hallow’s Eve tradition.


The Nantucket Main Street Halloween Parade & Costume Contest

On that grand ghoulish day of Wednesday, October 31st, downtown Nantucket once again marks the occasion with the Main Street Halloween Parade & Costume Contest, presented by The Inquirer & Mirror and the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce.

Proceedings get underway with a costume contest judged on the steps of the Methodist Church, with the parade itself following up at 5 PM. This procession of decked-out kids and grownups alike will step off at the Main Street fountain and proceed to the church, where the younger paraders will receive ribbons and goodie bags.

A slew of downtown Nantucket businesses will open their doors for trick-or-treating on Halloween as well, so rest assured it’ll be quite the holiday happening—mere blocks from the doorstep of Greydon House.
