Showcasing 25+Vineyard oyster farmers and cultivators from Massachusetts, 30+ local beers and wines from across the country, all located at the gorgeous new Martha’s Vineyard Museum overlooking the lagoon in Vineyard Haven. On festival grounds, guests will sample local bites prepared by brilliant chefs, enjoy tunes from a line up of fantastic musicians, and explore an interactive exhibit on the history of bivalves curated by our host (and more)!
The Island is your oyster. Let’s get crackin’!
Fusing pleasure and purpose, MVOF invites foodies to geek-out over 'merroir' and 'terroir,' green-huggers to get curious about bivalves and the environment and merrymakers to bring us all together to have some salty fun.
The African proverb "It takes a village" rings loud and true when it comes to producing the Martha’s Vineyard Oyster Fest. We invite you to join in by becoming a sponsor. Your support will help bring MVOF to the masses and stories of the magic of shellfish to life.
MVOF is the sum of its fantastic parts. Are you a Massachusetts oyster farmer, fisher, volunteer, musician, or chef? Learn more about how to join the festivities and show off what you do.
Martha’s Vineyard Oyster Fest, celebrating local seafood and the people behind its story.
MVOF is a high-end, high-value, hands-on community event that will raise funds to restore wild oyster populations via Martha’s Vineyard Shell Recovery Partnership; a shell recycling program run by the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group that rescues shells from local restaurants and events. Our goal is to produce Zero Waste event.
