First Friday Vineyard Haven

First Friday is a free community-inspired outdoor event in Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard.


Started in 2016 and based on the nation-wide "First Friday" art walks, we celebrate the local art and culture of our island each first Friday of the month June - October.


Located right in the Vineyard Haven Harbor Cultural District, we encourage goers to take a stroll and enjoy all our local galleries, artist studios, and other points of interest who participate each First Friday.

During our events, we also bring artists from all over the island to share and sell their work, provide demos, and even participate in live art experiences!


Martha's Vineyard has a long history of musicians coming to, from, and being inspired by our island. We celebrate this with live music performances at each of our monthly events!

As it gets later in the night, our live performances will convert to a silent disco party complete with headsets and live DJs.


From dine-in to take-out, Vineyard Haven has many options for food every day.

During our event, we raise the bar by bringing local food pop-ups to town for extra diversity once a month!  From food trucks to food carts, we have a great selection to choose from so always come to town hungry and plan to leave full!

Where and When?


First Friday VH takes place the first Fridays throughout the summer season. Come into town throughout the day for food, shopping and the usual sights.
