Sink Your Teeth Into Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2015!

July 10, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2015Summer is here and, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore that means it’s time for Chincoteague Blueberry Festival 2015!

The annual Chincoteague Blueberry Festival is a celebration of the humble, delicious, and surprisingly healthful little fruit that can be served in a myriad of ways: pies, cookies, jams, toppings, muffins, salads, ice cream, and – of course – fresh and raw: Yum – so good!

Food at the Chincoteague Blueberry Festival typically includes such mouthwatering favorites as fresh blueberry pancakes, jumbo blueberry muffins, blueberry pecan chicken salad sandwiches, greek salad with fresh blueberries, breakfast burrito, cheese and tomato quesadillas, grilled crab and avocado tacos, crab melt pitas, grilled burgers and brats, and – of course! – fresh blueberries and Sugarbakers’ wildly popular Ultimate Blueberry Pies. (these latter two items go FAST – pre-order berries from Dick Jones at: 540-273-2963 and Sugarbakers’ blueberry pies, whole or by the slice at 757-336-3712 if you actually hope to have some).

But the Chincoteague Blueberry Festival isn’t just a bunch of people standing around scarfing berries. It’s live music, delicious food, and the largest indoor-outdoor fine arts and crafts show on Virginia’s Eastern Shore with over 100 artisans from 12 states offering their handmade, one-of-a-kind wares for your shopping and browsing pleasure.

Held at the beautiful Chincoteague Center on Chincoteague Island every year on the weekend prior to the Chincoteague Pony Swim, the 2015 Chincoteague Blueberry Festival is a good time for all with a line-up of regional entertainers that are sure to keep your toes-tapping:
