As a bonus, the island will be hosting the Fad Market. Featuring 30 of the city’s emerg­ing mak­ers, design­ers, artists and small busi­ness­es. You’ll be able to see and shop hand­craft­ed jew­el­ry, art, appar­el, bath and body care, table­ware, home fur­nish­ings, arti­sanal pack­aged food and more.

  • Come alone or with friends.
  • We’ll walk around the Island checking out the old forts, historic sites and all the new experiences that have been added in the last few years.
