After a virtual season last year due to the pandemic, Vineyard Haven’s First Friday celebrations will resume this summer, with outdoor vendors on Main street, live music for listeners and dancers in Owen Park and food trucks.

Downtown restaurateurs are supportive of the food truck concept, Vineyard Haven Business Association president Sarah York told the Tisbury select board Tuesday.

“The four restaurants we have are super busy and people can’t get food for an hour,” Ms. York said.

Ms. York also requested, and received, the board’s approval to close Main street between Cromwell Lane and Union street starting at 3 p.m. for the monthly events, planned for 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on July 2, August 6, Sept. 3 and Oct. 1.

“We need something a little bit better and bigger and more fun for town,” she said.

The Union street closure is so food trucks can set up there, Ms. York said, but the street will remain accessible to emergency vehicles in case of need.

She said fire chief Greg Leland and police chief Mark Saloio both have indicated support for the association’s First Fridays plan, which will include fundraising for the firefighter’s association and other nonprofits that wish to take part.

Ms. York had another surprise in store: The business association has been working with harbor master John Crocker and shipping operator Ralph Packer to put the Owen Park musicians on a near-shore barge.

“It came about as a Covid precaution, but we decided it was a really cool thing to do,” she said.

“We’ve also gotten the okay to have a bonfire, through the fire department.”

With the Tisbury Street Fair, traditionally held in July as an anniversary celebration for the town’s founding, suspended for the second year in a row, Ms. York said her organization hopes to pitch its July 2 event as a replacement for the fair.

Also Tuesday, the board granted an application for three one-day all-alcohol licenses for concerts in Veterans Memorial Park on July 23, July 24 and July 25.

Adam Epstein of Innovation Arts and Entertainment, which produces the Beach Road Weekend festival, said the three concerts this year are for the benefit of the nonprofit Friends of MV Concert Series, the alcohol license applicant.

“They are the ones who are producing the event and will be the beneficiaries of all the alcohol revenue,” Mr. Epstein said.

But while the license allows for all alcohol sales, he said he doesn’t expect them to sell much hard liquor and that it would be in pre-packaged forms such as canned hard lemonade.

“The revenue that’s generated primarily comes from sponsorship from liquor brands,” Mr. Epstein told the board.

“They want the exposure . . . but they don’t expect to sell much.”

The alcohol licenses will be in effect from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and only adults whose I.D.s have been checked will be given wristbands that allow them into the area where they can purchase drinks, he said.

No more than two will be sold to a single person at one time and roaming security staff will monitor the audience to see that anyone holding an alcoholic drink is wearing a wristband, Mr. Epstein said.

In other business Tuesday, the board approved Mr. Crocker’s request to hire John Ryder as assistant summer harbor master and renewed business licenses for the Charles & Charles MV guesthouse, Atlantic Cab, Stagecoach Taxi and Able Taxi.

Board members also took notice of the latest Covid-19 update from town health agent Maura Valley.

“Zero new cases for three days, so we’re headed in the right direction,” board chairman James (Jimmy) Rogers said.

The next regular meeting, June 15, is planned to be its first in-person proceedings since Covid precautions began in 2020. The meeting will be in the town’s emergency services building, Mr. Rogers said.

Tisbury’s annual town meeting is June 12 and its special town meeting is June 13, both at the Tisbury School.
