Located 40 miles off the coast of Cape Cod lies the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Its traditional architecture, sandy beaches, and harbor towns and lighthouses, all combined with its limited access (restricted to air and sea travel) make it a special destination at any time of the year. But mark your calendar for the 12th Annual 2019 Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival, a truly unique experience. This year’s Festival will be held October 23-27 and offers more than 40 events over four days. It promises to deliver extraordinary wine tastings, delicious cuisine prepared by local culinary talent and guest chefs, and a plethora of other events and activities.
