Head for the Portuguese American Club on Friday, Oct. 13 for a lively benefit for WVVY — the Island’s volunteer-run, indie community radio station. For this homegrown fundraiser, Workman Song and Some Other Sin will play live music; the WVVY DJs are ready with a Friday night playlist; an art auction will take place; and dinner from Mo’s is available until 8 p.m. The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Portuguese American Club in Oak Bluffs, with a suggested donation of $20.
On Saturday, Oct. 14, celebrate with Teri Culletto, better known as the Vineyard Baker, at a Book Release Party for her first cookbook. A recipe demo and samples will be shared, and a copy of the book Beautiful Bread: Create & Bake Artful Masterpieces for Any Occasion is included in the ticket price. The party will be held at the FARM Institute from 10 to 11 a.m.; advance registration required.
If you can’t make it on Saturday, consider taking Teri’s Homemade Pretzels workshop at the FARM Institute on Thursday, Oct. 19; it’s back by popular demand.
You’ve probably seen the dazzling display of pumpkins of many shades, shapes and sizes at Morning Glory Farm. Now on Saturday, Oct. 14, they’ll be the focus at the farm’s annual Pumpkin Festival. A hay maze, cider press and pumpkin carving are also on the schedule for the event, which happens from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the fields and at the farm stand in Edgartown.
If relaxation and a sensory refresh are what you need at this time of year, experience a rejuvenating sound bath. On Sunday, Oct. 15, Trish Ginter will lead the unique experience of a sound bath in the iconic silo at Slough Farm. Advance registration is required for this event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. In case of rain, the sound bath will be held indoors.
On Sunday, Oct. 15, hundreds of Islanders will join together in the battle against hunger at the 33rd Annual Martha’s Vineyard CROP Hunger Walk. The three-mile walk starts and ends at St. Augustine’s Church in Vineyard Haven. At the finish, walkers and food equity activists will gather to celebrate reaching a $30,000 goal for the day, as well as to enjoy music and food together. Register at crophungerwalk.org.
