The mission of the Oak Bluffs Association is to support a harmonious working relationship among members of the business community, civic associations, Town officials and the citizens of Oak Bluffs. We are committed to promoting the businesses, activities and attractions of Oak Bluffs in order to improve tourism through the pursuit of excellence, and in so doing, improve the quality of life for the community year round.

The Oak Bluffs Association has an extensive public relations program that helps to promote events both on and off island, helping to bring visitors to Oak Bluffs.
The OBA advertises in the local and regional media for all OBA sponsored events. Press releases and calendar listings are included as support for this program.
All members receive a listing with their membership, plus, links to your own web site are FREE. Only members may be listed, and the OBA web site is continually being updated.
The OBA also maintains and staffs the Information Booth at Farland Square in OB. Members are eligible to participate for free in the booth program. Non-OBA Members are also welcome to display their brochures, space permitting, for a fee.
