If you enjoy looking at art, meeting artists and enjoying food, wine and live music, then this monthly Chincoteague, VA event is just the thing. There are often special events such as book signings, readings, and other spontaneous and fun happenings too! You never know what will happen, so it’s best to just go to Chincoteague and check it out.
The Chincoteague Art Stroll is held the second Saturday of each month. From April through September, the walk is 6-10 pm at all participating galleries, studios and shops throughout Chincoteague Island. During October and November, hours are 6-9 pm. From December through March, there’s a break as we cozy up for the winter months.
As you tour the galleries and shops in Chincoteague, you’ll see original photographs and paintings. Many celebrate the beauty of our Virginia coastal town as well as the Chincoteague ponies. There’s a wide range of subject matter and styles to choose from. You’ll also see whimsical and finely made crafts, from beautiful mobiles and jewelry to hand-sewn art bags and blown glass. Art openings all weekend, street entertainers, demonstrations and refreshments at each location add to the festive atmosphere of the Art Stroll in Chincoteague.
The book shops, and gourmet food and wine stores also stay open later. Taste samples of their wares and buy some to bring back to your room at our inn near Assateague Island. The galleries and gift shops have many wonderful and original gifts to buy for yourself or for your loved ones who love creative gifts.
