derby exhibit


Open to October 26, 2013

The Martha’s Vineyard Derby has been a staple event on the Island for over sixty years. This exhibition will trace the Derby’s rich history from its start in 1946 as an event to extend the shoulder season for Island tourism to an annual tradition that has brought people together from across the country. President of the Derby Association Ed Jerome and Derby Hall of Fame member Janet Messineo have guest curated the exhibit.

Video and oral history clips from the original exhibit have been made available for more people to learn about and listen to the Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby
