The North Carolina Coastal Federation (NCCF) is once again hosting its annual Hatteras Island Oyster Roast on Saturday, February 3, which is a popular winter fundraising event that celebrates local seafood along the waterfront of Hatteras Village.
The public is invited to warm up around the fire at Oden’s Dock, (next to Breakwater Inn), for the old-fashioned oyster roast, which also helps to give back to the local coastal environment of the Outer Banks.
On Saturday afternoon, 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 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.
Proceeds from this event benefit the North Carolina Coastal Federation’s oyster education and restoration programs, which help shorelines and oyster habitats all along the N.C. coast.
Tickets are $50 and advanced ticket purchase is highly recommended, as this event has previously sold out. At the door ticket sales may be limited or not available. Attendees 16 years old and under can attend for free with a paying adult.
The ticket price includes all-you-can-eat steamed oysters, one serving of clam chowder, cornbread, and a nonalcoholic beverage. Alcoholic beverages will be available for additional purchase on-site, thanks to a partnership with Carolina Brewery.
