Christmas in Edgartown - Parade & Events 2020


This year’s Christmas In Edgartown will take place with appropriate (and magical) modifications to continue Edgartown’s work of keeping our community safe, supported, and open for business. Our committee is diligently working to re-imagine your favorite traditions. Our businesses and nonprofits need your support this year, so shop and stay locally…come to Edgartown for some much needed 2020-style holiday cheer!

Every second weekend of December (THURSDAY DEC. 10 - SUNDAY DEC. 13 2020) Martha’s Vineyard invites you to join thousands of people visiting the Island to celebrate Christmas in Edgartown. Voted Martha’s Vineyard Best Off-Season Event, this weekend-long festival is packed with family-friendly events that capture the magic of the holidays. For over 3 decades Christmas in Edgartown raises more than $50,000 annually in total donations for many charities and nonprofits on the Vineyard. Here is a schedule of some of the must-see events:

Below please see the list of events that took place in 2019. We will modify it for 2020 as soon as we know.
