Enjoy all-you-can-eat fresh local Virginia oysters, fried seafood, chowder, dessert buffet, craft beers, wine, full bar, DJ/live music, commemorative glass, raffles & more at the Virginia Living Museum’s eighth annual Oyster Roast!
The VLM Oyster Roast is an official Green Festival. As guests enjoy fresh Chesapeake Bay oysters, over 38 bushels of shells will be collected during the event. These shells will be shipped to the VCU Rice Rivers Center in Richmond, VA and will age in storage for nearly a year before being placed in seeding tanks. After seeding, baby oysters will attach to the shells. Each shell may contain 10-15 spat, which would result in approximately 300,000 oysters being returned to the Chesapeake Bay.
Food will be provided by Mathews Lions Club, Waypoint Seafood & Grill, and Sam Rust Seafood. Desserts by Culinary Institute of Virginia Students. Sip on a glass or two of wine from Breakthru Beverage, beer from M. Price Distributing Company, or try St. George’s Brewing Co. Oyster Beer.
Tickets: $55, Age 21 and up. Tickets include commemorative glass and two beverage tickets for beer or wine.
*Ticket price will increase to $65 the week of the event.
All proceeds benefit the Museum’s award winning educational programs and animal care needs.
The Oyster Roast will be held rain or shine.
