Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival 2017 – Seriously Delicious Fun

July 7th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival 2017The Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival is delicious food, live music, and the largest arts & crafts event on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. July 21 – 23, 2017

Chincoteague’s Blueberry Festival, a can’t-miss experience for anyone in the area, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Each year, it seems like the festival grows in both size and attendance. It’s become almost as much of a tradition as the annual Chincoteague Island Pony Swim weekend that it precedes!

And why not? How can anyone say “no” to such a mouth-watering array of blueberry treats?

From plain, fresh, juicy blueberries to both familiar and unusual blueberry dishes, you’ll find it at the festival! Blueberry pancakes and muffins, blueberry sandwiches and salads, blueberry syrups, and – of course – desserts. It simply wouldn’t be Chincoteague Island Blueberry Festival without Sugarbakers’ Ultimate Blueberry Pies!
