Wild Ponies, Arts and Live Music at
Chincoteague's Blueberry Festival
by Sarah Pixley

Blueberries are the new kale? The Chincoteague Blueberry Festival boasts wild ponies, arts, music and many, many blueberry treats.

Every year prior to the Chincoteague Pony Swim, the Chincoteague Center holds the largest fine arts and crafts event on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Whether you travel by foot, bike, car or on the Chincoteague trolley, you'll be in the midst of the 100+ crafters from 12 states.

From July 25 to 27, you can explore the tastes of the Eastern Shore with foods like crab melt pitas, Maryland crabs and plenty of blueberry-themed foods, including pies, muffins, pancakes and ice cream. Live music will be played throughout the entire festival from a total of nine musicians.

Ticket prices for the festival are $5 daily; $8 for a two-day pass, or $10 for a three-day pass. The festival is located at 6155 Community Drive, Chincoteague Island, Virginia, about three hours from downtown D.C.
