popcorn cart at the county fair
Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Society Fair, 508-693-4343
Annual livestock show and fair every August about the middle of the month. Great fun for the whole family! This is a classic, old-fashioned county fair complete with contests for best-in-show on all varieties of farm animals, produce, art, photography and handicrafts. This fair is super fun to tour. There are even pig races to watch! The kids love to ride the rides and try their luck in the arcade. Plenty of people plan their vacation around attending this event.

TIP - During the week have to pay per ride but on the weekend you can buy all-on-price tickets and ride all of the rides. Located out in Tisbury, not too too far away from the house, well worth the drive.
