Martha’s Vineyard Welcomes the Return of Beach Road Weekend July 24-26, 2020
Beach Road Weekend is back! The three-day music festival will return to Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven July 24th – 26th. Beach Road Weekend launched in 2019 with three days of music headlined by John Fogerty, Phil Lesh and Friends, Grace Potter and Dispatch. Now the festival is back with a full day of music added to Friday’s schedule and special hotel packages for fans heading to the island for the entire weekend.
Fans will find several dramatic improvements that will enhance access to Beach Road for mainland visitors, and to make the experience of seeing the bands in Veterans Memorial Park in Tisbury better than ever.
