Explore. Shop. Dine. Stay.


The Historic Main Street Merchants Association promotes all the life and beauty Chincoteague Island has to offer! We're a group of all types of merchants located in the Main Street area, who work together to create unique experiences and enhance your enjoyment of our island life. Merchants who are members offer opportunities for you to shop, enjoy great food, boat and land tours, be entertained, find a place to stay during your visit and/or enjoy one of our special weekend experiences. Weekend events include our annual scavenger hunts Death by Chocolate and Search for the Shamrocks, plus Shop the Dock at Robert Reed Park on the third Sunday of each month from April to October.

Purchase a brick for a loved one.


​​You and your loved ones can be a part of historic Main Street by purchasing a brick for the path at the downtown Robert Reed Waterfront Park. Memorial bricks are being sold at $100 for an engraved brick. 



Friday, March 13 from 4:00-7:00 / Saturday, March 14 from 10:00-4:00  

Join us for this popular scavenger hunt adventure to celebrate the wearin' o' the green on Chincoteague Island! Playing cards can be picked up at any participating business. Then visit each participating merchant all over the island for a clue to find and to have your playing card validated. Once you have completed your playing card, come to Blue Crab Treasures any time during the event, to be registered for the gift drawings. Costumes are optional, but definitely add to the fun! Raffle drawings of gifts for adults (over 18) and separate drawings for children will be held at Island Theatre.
