On the second Saturday of each month from April though November, the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance sponsors the Second Saturday Art Stroll. Taking place from 6 to 9 p.m. at participating galleries and shops around the Island, plan ahead to come and visit us during this fun event in June (on the 8th). Meet local artists, see exhibits of a wide variety of visual arts, listen to live music and more! Usually, there are arts and crafts demonstrations, readings and book signings, wine tastings and quite possibly, something totally unexpected!
Visit these galleries and shops during Second Saturday to enjoy visiting artist exhibits, performances by musicians and wine and cheese tastings.

Visiting Chincoteague this Spring?
If you are making your travel arrangements for a vacation in Chincoteague this spring or summer, we invite you to book your stay at our Bed and Breakfast Inn. No matter what time of the year you come to the Island, there is always lots to do! Or if that what you need is a slow paced getaway, do very little! Read a book, taking leisurely strolls on the beach or while away the time with cards and games in our parlor.
On the Second Saturday of each month, from April through November, the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance sponsors the 2nd Saturday Art Stroll. This is a creative community event featuring art of all media: arts and crafts demonstrations, exhibits, live music, readings and book signings, wine tastings…and the unexpected! This year’s last Second Saturday event is November 10!
The Art Stroll takes place at participating galleries and shops around the Chincoteague Island from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. In many cases, there are also special events during the day at the downtown park. Come out and meet local artists, see exhibits of a wide variety of visual arts, listen to live music and more!
