Let Freedom Ring on Star Island

On Wednesday, August 28, Star Island invites everyone on island — guests and staff — to gather at 3 PM as the chapel bell rings to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Star Island - Irene Bush - People Around Chapel

Anyone who will be on Star Island at that time is welcome to attend the bell ringing and then a reading of King’s speech delivered by various island guests from the Oceanic Hotel’s front porch.

A reception on the front porch will follow.

The easiest way to be on Star Island for this event is to register for the Star Island Experience Week which welcomes overnight guests to partake in a number of activities and workshops that create the unique Star Island experience known to generations of families returning to the Isles of Shoals year after year.
