Save Your Appetite for Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2018!

July 2nd, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2018If you like delicious food, great live music, arts & crafts, and FRESH blueberries, you will definitely want to attend Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2018 – July 20th through the 22nd!

Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival is an annual celebration and extravaganza center4ed around what may be the world’s most perfect fruit: the blueberry!

You’ll see (and smell and -oh, my- taste!) both fresh and prepared blueberries. Blueberry treats and dishes will be everywhere and run the gamut from the familiar to the unusual. There will be blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry syrups, salads, and even sandwiches. Best of all – and of course – there will also be Sugarbakers’ Ultimate Blueberry Pies!

Though Sugarbakers Bakery permanently closed up shop earlier this year, it simply wouldn’t be a Chincoteague Blueberry Festival without Sugarbakers’ delicious Ultimate Blueberry Pies! You can buy them whole or by the slice – but whatever you do, you’d better buy them fast because that’s how they sell-out every year. In fact, to be certain you get one, it’s best to order ahead of time: 757-336-3712.

Chincoteague Blueberry Festival isn’t just food and drink, however. It’s also the largest fine arts and crafts event on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Over 100 artisans and vendors from more than 12 different states will be on hand. Painting, sculpture, metal and woodwork, jewelry, art glass, clothing, and much more. Visit the Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival Facebook page for pictures of some of this year’s artisans and their exquisite offerings.

You’ll also be entertained: the annual Blueberry Festival includes non-stop live music from top local and regional bands. So go ahead, come on out and join us all at Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival 2018!
