The 34 acres of the Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association is an open, pedestrian friendly National Historic Landmark. Our season is July and August annually. Most of our programming and our historic walking tours of the Tabernacle and MVCMA grounds take place during those two months.
You are welcome to enjoy the Campground year-round. There is no admission cost to explore and visitors are welcome to take pictures from the roads and walkways during the day. To view the inside of one of these historic cottages, we encourage you to visit our Cottage Museum, which is open 6 days a week, in season.
The historic iron Tabernacle is at the center and "heart" of our community. Please check our Calendar of Events which include Wednesday night Community Sings, Friday Night Concerts, and religious services and programs. Our signature event, Grand Illumination is worth an extra visit to the Vineyard.
Parking is limited, but the MVCMA is a short (2-5 minute) walk from the Oak Bluffs harbor area where the ferries and public buses arrive. All vehicles staying overnight on the grounds must have a current MVCMA parking permit. All vehicles should display the current year’s parking sticker or a temporary hang-tag (visitors and guests); both are available in the office. During July and August, all vehicles must be off of Trinity Park circle between 11 p.m. and 6.a.m. Cars parked there during these times, without a special permit, violate the MVCMA rules and may receive a Town of Oak Bluffs parking citation.
Individual cottages are privately owned. Please respect their privacy. Entering private yards and porches is not allowed.
