The North Carolina Coastal Federation is hosting its annual Hatteras Island Oyster Roast, an event that celebrates local seafood, along the waterfront of Hatteras village on February 1, 2020.
The public is invited to warm up around the fire at Oden’s Dock for the old-fashioned oyster roast, which also helps to give back to the Outer Banks community and the local coastal environment.
On Saturday, Feb. 1, from 1-4 p.m., attendees will be treated to fresh oysters, seafood chowder, cornbread and other refreshments, as well as homemade desserts from the on-site bake sale.
Throughout the afternoon, hungry attendees will also enjoy live music from Blurky’s Quirky Friends and good company among federation staff, board members and volunteers. The laid-back event will also include a silent auction that features items from local artisans, a half-day fishing trip, and much more.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the North Carolina Coastal Federation’s oyster education and restoration programs, and additionally, a portion of the proceeds from 2020’s oyster roast will be donated to support hurricane recovery efforts in the area.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online now, and are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Members of the federation will receive a $5 discount. Ticket price includes all you can eat steamed oysters, one serving of chowder, cornbread, and a nonalcoholic beverage.
Advanced ticket purchase is highly recommended, as this event has previously sold out in recent years. At the door ticket sales may be limited or not available.
This event is planned to take place outdoors, so please dress accordingly. In the case of extremely bad weather, the event will take place at the Hatteras Village Civic Center.
