Things To Do On Chincoteague

As you’re undoubtedly well aware, Thanksgiving weekend is the traditional start of holiday shopping. Chincoteague is hoe to a number of interesting shops and galleries.

New, used, collectible books and coffee at Sundial Books; hilarious and unique art and gifts at Flying Fish; up-cycled vintage and secondhand clothing at MamerSass. The list goes on.

The island is also home to “Misty of Chincoteague,” of course. Both Misty and her foal, Stormy, can be seen (in taxidermied form) at the Museum of Chincoteague – and that’s not all. Chincoteague Island has a long and fascinating history, which you can see from all angles at the museum. From the island’s native inhabitants to its famous Chincoteague salt oysters, Assateague Lighthouse, hand carved decoys, the wild ponies of Assateague, and much more.

No matter what you get up to during your stay, each day at Miss Molly’s Inn begins with a delicious gourmet breakfast. We also have complimentary snacks and beverages available so you can keep fueled up for all your island adventures.

The island is home to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Island National Seashore, not to mention dolphins, osprey, bald eagles, herons, and some of the most gorgeous sunsets around!

There’s also always lots of fun things happening on the island and Thanksgiving weekend is no exception!

This year’s Thanksgiving weekend on Chincoteague will include Waterfowl Weekend 2019, the annual Holly Day Market, and the last Chincoteague Farmers Market of the year. It will also see the annual Holiday Tree Lighting at Robert Reed Waterfront Park, which is always a lot of fun with hot chocolate and caroling.

Chincoteague Pony Roundup Fall 2019See the famous wild horses of Chincoteague up close during their annual Fall Chincoteague Pony Roundup. The Autumn 2019 Roundup is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 18th and 19th.

If you thought the annual Pony Swim was the only time you could come see the wild horses of Assateague, think again!

In fact, there are three opportunities each year to see the wild ponies. There’s the Pony Swim (of course) but also the spring and fall roundups. While the purpose of the annual swim is for a health check and an auction of foals, these other roundups provide overall health checks for the herd. The Spring session also includes releasing foals from pony auction buybacks back into the herd.
