TIPS TO MAKE YOUR FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE MORE ENJOYABLE


  • There are only a limited number of tables available for you to sit.  You may wish to bring   your own folding tables, chairs, blankets, etc. for your comfort.
  • We encourage you to ride the FREE trolley provided by the Chamber and the Town of Chincoteague but parking is also available on the grounds.
  • We realize that Tom's Cove Park allows pets, but for this event PETS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED in the festival area.
  • Eat all you want at the festival, but please do not remove food from the festival grounds.
  • Festival food is served from various booths requiring you to go to each one to get what you want to eat.  Souvenir trays will be on sale at the beer tent to assist you in carrying your food or you may bring your own.  Soft drinks are provided in the ticket price.  Food will be limited per trip, per person, at each booth to allow everyone to get something without having to wait a long time.  You may come back later for more. 
  • Beer will be sold separately.  You are permitted to bring in your own coolers.  
  • Souvenirs will be sold at the festival.  Please keep in mind that these items sell out quickly.  You might want to purchase them as soon as the gates open.  There will be T-shirts, mugs, trays, hats and aprons.  A limited number of shirts may be sold in advance at the Chamber Office prior to the festival.  We accept all major credit cards in the office and festival day.
