Annapolis Oyster Roast & Sock Burning

Saturday March 23
12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Celebrate spring with a family-friendly feast of the Chesapeake’s most cherished bivalve. The third annual Annapolis Oyster Roast & Sock Burning will take place at the Annapolis Maritime Museum on Saturday, March 23, from Noon to 4 p.m. The People’s Choice Ticket is $50 which includes the Oyster Roast plus a commemorative T-shirt and tastings of oyster dishes from area restaurants competing for “bragging rights” for Annapolis’ best oyster recipe. The Oyster Roast ticket is $25 per person, $10 for kids aged 13 – 18, and free for kids 12 and under. The festivities include the burning of the socks – a spring tradition at the Museum – plus live music, oyster shucking and cooking demonstrations, and family activities and exhibits that highlight the importance of the oyster to the health of the Chesapeake Bay as well as this area’s unique maritime heritage. Of course, there will be plenty of oysters – raw, steamed and roasted – for a modest additional fee BBQ, hotdogs, hamburgers plus beer, wine and soft drinks.
