Dreamland’s Annual Fundraiser


The Annual ‘DreamBIG’ Fundraiser helps The Dreamland continue our mission of building community on Nantucket year-round through shared experiences in film, art, culture, and learning.  With a rich history dating back over 180 years, the Dreamland has been lovingly restored through the generous donations of private donors as the arts, education, cultural and community center of Nantucket. Our goal is to elevate the performing arts, live theatre, educational and cultural programming in our island community.
