A wonderful band concert, piano recital, and sing along all ending in the dimming of lights and one large Chinese lantern marched down the aisle. When that is set into place, the tabernacle and campground homes light up and a wonderland of... More

For the Oak Bluffs experience, you must walk the gingerbread loop around the Tabernacle and enjoy the unique craftsmanship of each house.

Only saw this from the van. Amazing history and many uses today. I suggest you walk the area and see for yourself this architectural wonder.

Nice place! It's an easy walk through when concerts are not happening. We took some pictures and sat down for a while.

Great place to relax and walk through. There are occasional concerts at night. Peaceful and a nice shaded place to take a minute to read or rest.

The Tabernacle is on the Natinal register of Historic places and Trinity Park is part of the "Campground which is a National Historic Monument.

Easy walk from the ferry and from town. This is in the old Camp Ground and dates to Victorian times. There is a sing along on Wednesdays.

This very large tabernacle is used often for concerts, meetings and for Illumination Night where all the "gingerbread cottges" are lit up. A very impressive sight and only done once in the summer.
