Built in 1859, the beautiful Martha's Vineyard Grange Hall was the home of the renowned Agricultural Fair until 1997. Today, the building, which is composed of gorgeous wood beams and a Cape Cod-style exterior, plays host to a variety of events and groups, including farmer's markets, antique sales, and art and culture fairs.
Located on the second floor of the Tisbury Town Hall, the Katharine Cornell Theater is named for the great 20th-century stage actress who retired to Martha's Vineyard in the 1950s. Many of the performances are of Irish music and this small theater is the perfect intimate setting for these types of shows. There are only a handful of performances held here throughout the year, but each of them gets you in the spirit for the sounds of the Emerald Isle.
In 1932, Alfred Hall purchased the Vineyard Theater and renamed it the Capawock Theater, after the important community hall of the same name that was located just down the street. The theater has recently undergone a massive restoration project that has left it gleaming and installed with top-of-the-line movie equipment. Visitors to the theater can take in a movie and can also catch live performances, depending on what the community is putting on at the time.
