President Obama will return to Martha’s Vineyard in August for a 15-day vacation, the sixth summer White House trip during his presidency.

The President and First Lady Michelle Obama are scheduled to arrive on the Vineyard on Saturday, August 8 and depart on Sunday, August 23, White House spokesman Keith Maley said in an email last Friday.

According to Mr. Maley, there are no public events scheduled for the trip, and further details regarding the President and First Lady’s travel will be released as soon as they are available.

The first family has always stayed in Chilmark. This year the Obamas will again stay at a private home off North Road belonging to Joanne Hubschman.

During past summer visits, the President has been a frequent visitor to Island golf courses, and he and the First Lady have spent evenings out at Island restaurants. The couple’s daughters often join their parents for at least part of the trip, and the family is known to enjoy beach outings and bike rides in the state forest. First dogs Bo and Sunny often come along for the vacation.

As needed, the President addresses matters both national and international from the Vineyard; last year, he made statements in Chilmark and at the Edgartown School about tensions in Ferguson, Mo., the execution of journalist James Foley, and the conflict in Iraq.

The President and his family vacationed on the Island from 2009 to 2014 with the exception of 2012, the year that was run-up to the presidential election. Mr. Obama was also an Island visitor before he was president. Valerie Jarrett, a presidential advisor and close family friend, is a longtime seasonal resident of Oak Bluffs.
