Chincoteague oysters — known for their salty, briny flavor — bring the island community together every October to celebrate the famous bivalves, which are shipped all over the world. Sample crispy single-fried oysters, freshly shucked raw oysters, golden oyster fritter sandwiches, succulent steamed oysters and bowls of Eastern Shore style clam chowder. The feast is rounded out by some greens in the form of salads, and crispy onion-studded hushpuppies. Beer is available on site or you can load up your own cooler and bring it.
