Each year in early May, Chincoteague Island, Virginia hosts its annual seafood festival. This is the biggest, most extravagant seafood festival that I know of. The Eastern Shore includes portions of Virginia, Maryland, and Deleware on the east coast of the United States and is world-renowned for its Chesapeake Bay living and delectable seafood served the way only Eastern Shore folks know how. Wherever else in the world you eat seafood, if you don’t try it here, you’re missing out on this small part of the world’s unique tastes and welcoming hospitality.
To purchase your tickets for this year’s event, visit the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce. Don’t forget to bring your picnic blankets and/or lawn chairs!
