Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust Events

The Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust hosts some of the island’s most popular special events.

Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll and the Taste of the Vineyard Patrons’ Stroll and Auction are the Trust’s most important annual fundraisers. Popularly considered to be the kick off to the island’s summer season, both Taste events sell out each year.

Generations Picnic is our way to introduce the next generation of Island families to the work of the Preservation Trust and foster their commitment to our community. Your family’s participation will enable our organization to keep our Island’s living institutions vital and open for the enjoyment of all. Join our celebration of Island life – bring the whole family! Our fun-filled theme event features music, refreshments and activities for all ages. We look forward to seeing you there!

Fourth of July in Edgartown is Americana at its best. Join us on the lawn of the historic Dr. Daniel Fisher House for a patriotic picnic and parade viewing. Refreshments are sold concession style – no tickets required!  A lively band concert in the Old Whaling Church is fun for the whole family.

Christmas in Edgartown is a weekend festival you don’t want to miss!  The Preservation Trust hosts our popular annual Holiday Cocktail Party at the Dr. Fisher House, beautifully decorated inside and out.  The beloved MVRHS Minnesingers, the Island’s premier high school chorale group, performs two holiday concerts at the magnificent Old Whaling Church.  Special visit by Santa Claus at the Family Matinee!
