The Chincoteague Oyster Festival is held to promote the seafood industry and mark the arrival of the oyster season. Come and enjoy oysters—raw, steamed, fritters, and single fried; clam fritters, clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, salad bar, hot dogs, hushpuppies, and Boardwalk fries. Non-alcoholic beverages are included in the ticket price with beer available for purchase.
Island Boy, a festival favorite for over 25 years, will provide live entertainment for everyone’s listening and dancing enjoyment.
An Extravaganza Raffle is held with the winner receiving t-shirts, tickets, lodging, gift certificates for meals, and much more for the following year’s festival.
A favorite at the festival is the “Best Place/Space Award” which is given to the best decorated area.
There will also be a variety of souvenirs available for purchase.
