The Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society is now accepting submissions for its annual fair poster contest. The winning entry will be featured on the 2023 Agricultural Fair poster, T-shirts and other merchandise. Submissions will be accepted through Friday, March 31.

This year’s fair will be held August 17 through 20.

2023 marks the 161st year of the annual Agricultural Fair, a favorite Island event. Fair posters have become an integral part of the annual summer event, with each poster telling a story and becoming a collector’s item.

All media are accepted and must be submitted as original artwork sized 18 inches x 24 inches. Submissions can be dropped off at the Agricultural Hall, 35 Panhandle Road in West Tisbury or mailed to P.O. Box 73, West Tisbury, MA 02575.
