SeaStreak to offer late-night run after Beach Road Weekend

Seastreak will be providing late-night fast ferry service for Beach Road Weekend.

Folks planning to attend the three-day music festival Beach Road Weekend from off-Island will have an alternative to the Steamship Authority ferries that will allow them to see every last minute of the concerts.

Beach Road Weekend announced Monday that it has partnered with SeaStreak ferry for special late-night service from Vineyard Haven to New Bedford. Anyone who purchases a ticket through is guaranteed a spot on the boat for the 10 pm crossings on Saturday and Sunday, according to the release.

To purchase a ticket, guests can head to and select the New Bedford to Martha’s Vineyard Route. Be sure to select New Bedford as your departing location and Vineyard Haven as your destination. You will then be able to select the special late-night service on Saturday or Sunday. Guests can also call 1-800-BOATRIDE (1-800-262-8743) and talk with a customer service representative to purchase a ticket.

Guests heading to the Vineyard will arrive at Oak Bluffs and take the Beach Road Weekend shuttle to the festival at Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven. At the end of the night, guests can walk to the Vineyard Haven terminal and catch the Seastreak’s late-night service to New Bedford, which will board at 9:45 pm and depart at 10 pm. 

“The partnership with the SeaStreak is the perfect fit for Beach Road Weekend,” said Adam Epstein, CEO of Innovation Arts & Entertainment, in the release. “Our guests will be able to stay on the mainland and be able to enjoy everything the Vineyard has to offer during Beach Road Weekend without missing a minute of music.”

Beach Road Weekend will be held at Veterans Memorial Park on Friday, August 9, through Sunday, August 11. Friday night features “Jaws” on the big screens as the Cape Symphony plays the iconic score in sync with the movie. Saturday, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty headlines the festival with Boston-based band Dispatch, the North Mississippi Allstars, Mason Jennings, and Alejandro Escovedo. The festival closes out on Sunday with Vineyard favorite Grace Potter, Phil Lesh & Friends, reggae singer Matisyahu, funk & jazz band Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, and the Original Wailers.
