Yay Spring! Drive a Boat, Dance on the Vine, Enjoy History, Musicals, Art & More

Playing on the North Fork's coastal waters is a local joy, and this weekend Port of Egypt Marine invites you to start the boating season by test driving one of 11 models at their annual open house. Winterfest: Live on the Vine enters week five of six, so the opportunity to enjoy this extraordinary music fest is slipping away. This weekend features many acts of many types, and as always, still more North Fork venues offer live music outside the festival.

The North Fork's rich history is on display starting this weekend at the Southold Historical Society's Cosden-Price Gallery, which opens a new exhibit. The Shelter Island Historical Society sponsors a multi-media lecture on the arts and culture of the Revolutionary War era.

The North Fork Community Theater continues its run of the comedic musical Over the River and Through the Woods, while the Southold Drama Club stages the musical The Addams Family.

Finally, Castello Di Borghese opens the 6th Annual Down With Art exhibit, featuring the amazing works of artists with Down Syndrome.

Saturday

  • Lecture: Revolutionary War Era, Shelter Island. A "multi-media journey back to the days of the American Revolution. Between 1760 and 1800, Americans created a movement that achieved much more than independence. They established a bold new vision of the relationship between citizens and their government. Their revolutionary ideal has traditionally been studied in the political arena, but Mr. Olton has found ways to see and hear other dimensions of it in the art and music of the time. His presentation will include compelling examples of these art forms, drawn from research for his new book, Heroic Vision: A Story of Revolutionary Art and Music."
