2016 Chincoteague Seafood FestivalTie on that bib and gird your tastebuds – the 2016 Chincoteague Seafood Festival is just around the corner, Saturday May 7, 2016!

A spring festival held annually since 1968, the 2016 Chincoteague Seafood Festival is part of an almost 50 year-old, Eastern Shore tradition that will have your tongue and tummy very happy, indeed. Fresh steamed “Little Neck” clams, single fried oysters, fish, shrimp, clam fritters, clam strips, raw oysters and clams, clam chowder, and more.

Not just seafood – not that there’s anything wrong with that, mind you! – the 2016 Chincoteague Seafood Festival also provides grilled chicken, sweet potato fries and boardwalk fries, hushpuppies, a full salad bar, beer, and soft drinks.

Beyond all the delicious food, the 2016 Chincoteague Seafood Festival will also feature live, hip-shaking, toe-tapping tunes as performed by Audio Sauce, a popular, Virginia Beach cover-band known for their energetic and upbeat versions of dance, beach party, and modern rock hits.

Beyond eating all that great, fresh, Virginia Coast seafood and enjoying the live music, you’ll also have the opportunity to peruse the one-of-a-kind offerings available in the Chincoteague Seafood Festival big Arts & Crafts tent. Local and regional artisans and vendors will be there with all manner of wonderful and unique, handmade gifts, ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Great fun!

Gates open at 10am to let you grab your spot, while the food and drink will be made available from noon to 4pm.
