Fall means it’s time again for the Barn Raisers Ball. This is the 23rd year in a row for the event, which will take place on Saturday, Nov. 5 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Agricultural Hall in West Tisbury. It is a harvest festival of food, music and dancing, and a night to celebrate the anniversary of the raising of the Agricultural Hall. In 1994, Islanders gathered to create the structure with material salvaged from an old barn in New Hampshire.

The event is free, but guests are asked to bring a dessert to share, along with some dancing shoes.
