MARSH Fest 2017MARSH Fest promises an afternoon of food, music, art, craft beer, and hands on experiences with local farmers, artisans, and researchers. September 23rd, 2017 on Chincotague Island.

What do craft beer, live music, art, science, farming, and nature all have in common? Why MARSH Fest, of course!

MARSH Fest is an opportunity for hands-on experiences with farmers, artisans, and researchers while enjoying craft beers, local food, and live bands. It’s a unique chance to discover the very best that the Eastern Shore has to offer.

Best of all, 100% of the proceeds from MARSH Fest will go towards giving every 8th grade student in Accomack and Northampton County a field experience.

During MARSH Fest, you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about the marshlands. The festival is broken up into 6 different ecosystems: Maritime Forest, Dunes, Fresh Marsh, Salt Marsh, Intertidal, and Ocean. At each station, you’ll discover different craft breweries, artists, farmers, food vendors, scientists, and researchers. You’ll learn, laugh, and come to love (if you don’t already) the complex marsh lands ecosystem.

More than 20 craft breweries will be on hand, along with more than 15 local food vendors. Music will be provided by 5 regional bands, including headliner, Angelica Garcia.
