Boston Pops on Nantucket

Saturday, August 10, 2019

For more than 20 years, the Boston Pops on Nantucket has been the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment all to raise money for Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

In 2018, 7,000 concert-goers packed Jetties Beach to enjoy the music of Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, together with RAIN, A Tribute to the Beatles! Presented by Nantucket Island Resorts and sponsored by Fidelity Investments, this year’s Pops is sure to be another sell-out event!

History of the Event

In 1997, one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most ardent supporters, Kathryn Clauss, had an idea. She wanted to bring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to Nantucket to host a benefit concert for the hospital. No one believed she could pull it off, but with a lot of hard work and help from friends, she did.
