On Amity Island," (aka Martha's Vineyard), from August 9th to 12th, 2012, there will be a JAWSFEST! It will be a four-day event highlighting the experiences, filming, and memories of the making of JAWS©.  

As indicated on the official event web site -  -  one special part of this event will be the " opportunity to meet with globally recognized shark experts such as Dr. Greg Skomal and members of Discovery Channel Shark Week. Leading conservation organizations, including Shark Savers, will join with Wendy Benchley, divers and conservationists to teach us about sharks in our oceans today. Artists with a love and appreciation for the beauty and importance of sharks will display their work and share stories of inspiration."
