A Summer Save-the-Date: Chincoteague Island Pony Swim


<< More Events


Chincoteague Island’s world-famous pony swim is one piece of a magical weeklong event and there’s going to be plenty to see and do!

From July 23-29, 2022, visit Chincoteague Island for festivities, including a Fireman’s Carnival, free movie showings of Misty of Chincoteague, the famous pony roundup, and of course, the pony parade! With a variety of pony-related events happening each day, the week features two pony herd roundups, a beach walk (July 25, 2022), and even pony vet checks (July 26, 2022)!

Don’t forget to catch the “Saltwater Cowboys” as they guide a beautiful herd of wild ponies from Assateague Island to Chincoteague Island in what is known as the majestic pony swim (July 27, 2022) — the highlight of a week full of festivities to commemorate the 97th annual event.

As the state of Virginia’s only resort island, Chincoteague Island makes a great drivable destination for those looking to escape to the beautiful beaches of the Eastern Shore! Thanks to the 1961 premiere of Misty of Chincoteague, the small fishing village became famous and has turned into the serene vacation spot many know and love today!

Though the island is only 7-miles long and 3-miles wide, it still boasts plenty of places to eat, stay, and shop! Go crabbing, rent a bike, or take a guided nature tour before taking part in one of the island’s small community events!
