Martha’s Vineyard Community Notes


Tisbury School Harvest Festival is Sunday

The Tisbury School will host its annual Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 13th, from 3 pm to 5 pm on the school grounds.

The festival includes a potluck supper, hayrides, pumpkin decorating, face painting, games and more. The Harvest Festival is part of the Tisbury School’s continued community outreach program. The event is hosted and sponsored by the Tisbury School PTO.

The Harvest Festival began ten years ago as an opportunity to reach out to members of the community by hosting an event that was affordable and accessible to all families, according to a press release. All games and activities are free of charge.

The fun will include an Island Grown Schools apple tasting booth and a visit by an alpaca from Island Alpaca farm in Oak Bluffs.
