How to Celebrate Independence Day Martha’s Vineyard Style

Martha’s Vineyard has a calendar filled with incredible events and festivities year-round, and the Fourth of July is no exception. There are countless things to do that’ll put you in a festive spirit while helping create lifelong memories.

Get your spot to watch the annual Edgartown Parade. Floats, bands, and classic cars depart from Edgartown School and set off down Main Street at 5 p.m. This route takes the procession right past the front of our hotel!

After the parade, walk up North Water Street to find the perfect viewing spot for the fireworks display. The show takes place over Edgartown Harbor and starts around 9 p.m.

For a different way to celebrate, go to Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary at 8 p.m. Check out the Fourth of July Firefly Night, where you can spend the night looking for the recognizable insect. At the end of the night, gather by the fire for s’mores and stargazing.

Before the official festivities start, have your own fun by spending the day on the beach or visiting other land bank properties, like Sweetened Water.
