Local and national carvers and artists exhibit their work. Awards are given in various carving categories, art and photography. Special awards are given for best carving display and best art display. Children under 12 years choose their favorite artist by placing a ribbon on the artist's table. The Curtis Merritt Award of Excellence is awarded to the exhibitor who displays excellence as an individual as well as an artist and/or carver. This award is voted on by the exhibitors. Beautifully hand carved and/or painted wooden Easter Eggs designed by some of the exhibitors and chamber members will be offered in a silent auction. 

Hailed as the first decoy show of the year for most of the east coast, the Chincoteague Island Easter Decoy & Art Festival has been a traditional sign of spring on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
