Mar 01, 2011 09:58PM ● Published by Anonymous

The Annapolis Maritime Museum has announced the First Annual Annapolis Oyster Roast on Saturday, March 19, 2011 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at the Museum Campus located at McNasby’s Oyster Company, 723 Second Street, Annapolis, MD, at Back Creek.

The festivities include the burning of the socks - a spring tradition at the Museum - plus live music by The Rovers.  Up to 10 area restaurants will participate in the “First Annual Oyster Tasting Contest” where attendees can sample tastes then vote for their favorite. There will also be oyster shucking contests, 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. In addition, the Museum’s exhibition gallery will be open with the exhibit, “Oysters on the Half Shell.” Additional food and beverages will be available for a modest additional fee.

Admission is $25 per adult and includes all-you-can-eat-oysters on the half shell, raw & roasted and oyster tastings from the competition, while supplies last.  Kids 13-18 pay $5, and kids 12 and under are FREE.

Tickets are available to purchase at http://amaritime.org/oysterroast2011.html or by calling the Museum at 410-295-0104.

See the website for directions to nearby parking and free shuttles.

All proceeds go towards the Museum’s operational and educational programs.
