Search for the Shamrocks on Chincoteague

Chincoteague Island is gearing up for an exhilarating celebration this St. Patrick’s Day with its highly anticipated event, “Search for the Shamrocks.” Hosted by the Historic Main Street Merchants Association, this vibrant occasion promises a weekend filled with fun, laughter, and a touch of Irish magic.

Set against the backdrop of the island’s picturesque landscapes and charming community, “Search for the Shamrocks” invites locals and visitors alike to embark on a quest for luck and adventure. Participants will be tasked with scouring the island’s hidden nooks and crannies in search of shamrocks to solve a riddle. Once players have finished their playing card, they cross the finish line at the Ropewalk to be entered into prize drawings!

The Search for the Shamrocks is more than just a treasure hunt; it’s an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. We’re excited to welcome everyone to Chincoteague Island for a day of excitement and camaraderie.

“Search for the Shamrocks” aims to not only entertain but also foster a sense of community and togetherness. Whether you’re a seasoned islander or a first-time visitor, this event promises an unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day experience.
