The town of Tisbury celebrates its 152nd birthday this Saturday, July 8 with music, food, games and goods on Main street in Vineyard Haven.

The annual Tisbury Street Fair returns this year with vendors both familiar and new to mark the anniversary of the town’s founding. Smells of fried dough, buttery lobster rolls and hotdogs grilled by firefighters will mingle in the air with music by local bands.

While they sample local delicacies, fairgoers can try their hand competing in games and can shop from a variety of Island vendors.

This year, Crystal Thomas inherits the organizing helm from her mother, Robin Sylvia, who is stepping down after more than 15 years as the fair’s organizer. Ms. Thomas predicts the transition will be smooth — the duo is no stranger to collaboration. Ms. Thomas manages Ms. Sylvia’s store in Vineyard Haven, Mardell's Gifts & Jewelry.

Having grown up in Tisbury, Ms. Thomas felt strongly about continuing the street fair tradition. Ms. Thomas assisted her mother each year as she put on the event, and she hopes to continue her legacy.

“I’m very excited to keep the fair going,” Ms. Thomas said. “It’s been going on for such a long time. And it’s childhood memories for me. It’s something we expect to go on every July 8.”

The fair takes place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on July 8; a rain date is set for the same time on July 9.
