What better way to celebrate the end of summer than by welcoming the crisp fall wind as it rolls in from the sea? Wind brings with it the simple pleasures of life: wispy waves straight out of a surfer's dream and generous gusts perfect for parading a colorful kite through the sky. Just some of the fun at the Martha's Vineyard Wind Festival will include frisbee throwing, sailing wind surfing, kite flying, and flying contraptions galore!
Celebrate the sun setting on summer with the annual Tivoli Day street fair and block party!

There will be live music from local artists, dance performances, end-of-summer sales, and so much more!
