Enjoy all-you-can-eat fresh Virginia oysters, fried seafood, chowder, dessert buffet, craft beer, wine, music, raffles and more at the Virginia Living Museum's eighth annual Oyster Roast. Voted "Best of the 757 Gold for Outdoor Festivals" by Coastal Virginia Magazine, this event usually sells out.

Food will be provided by Mathews Lions Club, Waypoint Seafood & Grill, Phillips Energy, and Sam Rust Seafood. Desserts by Culinary Institute of Virginia students. Guests receive two drink tickets. 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. Enjoy live music by Louis Vangieri and Dan Pellegrino.

The Oyster Roast will be held rain or shine. It will move into the museum if inclement weather demands. Proceeds benefit the museum's education and conservation programs. This is an official Virginia Green Festival. Empty oyster shells will be recycled by the VCU Rice Rivers Center.
