Overview

The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance is a non-profit arts organization that was established in 2005. We went from having a handful of events like the 2nd Saturday Art Stroll and Plein Art Show and Sale, to producing over 100 events a year. In December 2015, we purchased our home at 6309 Church Street that we had been renting since 2011. CCA is a very busy organization and is 100% volunteer. Our programs include: -Annual Plein Art Show and Sale -Chincoteague Island Theatre Company performances, dinner theatre, play readings, and more -Annual Photo Contest -Farmers Market from April-October -Second Saturday Artful Flea -Holly Day Market - Island Coffeehouse -Classes in everything you can imagine -Saturday Kid Art Class -Music at the Dock and Movies in the Park at Robert Reed Park - Storytelling Story Swaps, our own Art Gallery. We also gift three graduating artistic seniors with scholarships. Since 2014, CCA has hosted the Chincoteague Island Farmers and Artisans Market on our property.

Hi Jeannette, I'm so happy you enjoyed the Second Saturday Artful Flea! It's good to know that an event that takes a lot of volunteer hours to plan and staff was received so well. We hope to see you again soon!

Our group of 22 had a wonderful seafood dinner with a crab picken, when we gathered at this building. The music as provided by a local person who played delightful sea shanties. The art work of the seascapes and oyster-men was beautiful, too.

The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance does a monthly farmers' market/flea market/craft market. We were lucky to be in town during the July event. Very nice crafts, so low in price! Fresh farm veggies, food truck, live music. What's not to love? Oh, yeah, the heat. Well,...More

Great selection at the Farmer's Market! Bring a cooler so you take home some clams and oysters. CCA is run by a dedicated group of volunteers who work hard to brings arts and events to Chincoteague Island.

The CCA puts on many wonderful cultural events each summer. This summer we got to watch "A Face in the Crowd" on movie night, and danced to CAISO Steel Drum Band on the village green.

We attended the farmer's market and were disappointed that there were only three actual farm produce booths. The rest were artisans. The products displayed were a good quality. I just didn't consider it to be a farmers market.More
