Oyster Roast at Watermen's

Watermen’s Annual Oyster Roast

Saturday, September 10, 2022

Watermen’s Museum’s Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser. All you can eat (AYCE) local oysters, creamy clam chowder (gluten free) and clam chowder with bacon, hot dogs, sides, and dessert. Make a day out of it and attend the First Responders Market on the Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown and then walk over to the Watermen’s Museum for the Oyster Roast!

Tickets are available for the September 10th Oyster Roast Fundraiser.  This is an All-You-Can Eat (AYCE) event.  

Food for the event will include: Oysters (raw or roasted), Homemade gluten-free clam chowder (with or without bacon), Hot Dogs, Side dishes, Desserts.  Sodas and water, wine and beer will also be available.

They will be serving food from Noon until 3 PM. Although this is primarily an oyster roast, they understand, there are those people who absolutely love oysters and there are those people who can’t understand why anyone would even consider eating  oysters.. So, as in previous years, they have structured their food availability and ticket pricing to give options for both groups of people.   All oysters this year are being supplied by our friends at Big Island Seafood on the Severn River of the Mobjack Bay in the Guinea area of Gloucester County.  Side Dishes and Desserts are being furnished by Carrot Tree Kitchens. Hot Dogs will be available for the kids and other family members.

Funds raised during the event will pay for the locally procured food items, and grill rentals ,  with remaining funds all retained by the Watermen’s Museum to support our educational programs.

 We are fortunate to have a few sponsors who have donated to help off-set the overall costs of this fundraiser (thereby keeping ticket costs lower.  They are Dominion Energy, Phillips Energy,  Carrot Tree Kitchens,  and WestRock Corporation (locally at the West Point Paper mill).  We can’t thank them enough.
