Nothing quite like the Grand Illumination held here every August. The sing-a-long is great fun. The lanterns lit on the homes around the Tabernacle were simple incredible. Attending the Grand Illumination should be on everyone's lifetime bucket list!!!

Very cute houses and park. Stayed over one evening so I was able to hear the beautiful music come from the center of the tabernacle.

This is a very quick walk from the Oak Bluffs harbor to the tabernacle. You can see many of the gingerbread cottages all around the tabernacle. The size is impressive and the open air sides provides lots of fresh air. It is a Historic Preservation site.

Even if no event is happening here, you can get a feeling of the sublime. I would like to be here for music. You can sit in the shade and open air and think about prayers, or history, or beliefs. A special place.

I think this was my most favourite place to visit at Martha's Vineyard. hHe gingerbread houses - all 300 of them were absolutely beautiful and i thoroughly enjoyed wandering around them snapping off photographs. The people that own them are friendly and really happy to talk to you about their homes. Fell madly in love with this whole site.

Quiet shady place to rest after wandering around & exploring the beautiful cottages all around. We seemed welcome enough to have a sit on the benches. There was a fellow playing piano very nicely.

Over 100 years ago, the Tabernacle featured religious revivals, traveling preachers and faith-filled followers. Today, thanks to ongoing restoration by the MV Preservation Trust, the summertime Tabernacle still hosts Wednesday evening singalongs, occasional Sunday services, internationally-recognized speakers and musicians, as well as the annual Martha's Vineyard High School graduation. During the quieter shoulder-seasons, small Bible Study groups may gather while... More

There wasn't anything going on when we stopped by here. It was roped off so we could not go in and sit for a little while but there was plenty of seating when someone is here performing. This place sits among many gingerbread houses. The area is quiet, away from the crowds. It's nice to check it out for a... More

The Tabernacle sits in the middle of the quaint and lovely Gothic cottages in The Campground and helps one to understand how important religion was to those original Methodist "campers". I'm sure attending a service in this vast open air structure must be awesome and inspiring. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll in the park and around the Tabernacle.

While you're visiting Martha's Vineyard, don't miss the beautiful Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs. Sit and think about life, the Universe and everything.
