On Saturday, November 25 the Cape Charles Historical Society will hold its 20th annual Oyster Roast from 4 until 8 at the Museum – note the earlier time this year. The menu includes local oysters – roasted and raw, fried chicken, potato salad, chowder, 4 bean salad, homemade rolls, desserts, coffee, and soda, with beer and wine available. Food is served 4 -6 PM, with live classic and acoustic rock music by Mike Proffitt and Dana Silvercloud throughout. Also, a silent auction featuring an array of eclectic items, and the traditional Eastern Shore 50/50 raffle. Seating is available both inside the Museum and outside under the tent (with some heat).
Tickets to the Roast are $40 for adults and $15 for children 7-12. As always, we welcome sponsors ($120 gives 2 tickets; $240 – 4 tickets, etc) and also items for the Silent Auction. Tickets and sponsorships are available in Cape Charles at Periwinkles on 215 Mason Ave by cash or check, and at the Museum by cash, check or credit card. To pay over the internet with a credit card, send an email to email@example.com stating number of tickets desired, and you will be invoiced through Paypal. ($1 extra per ticket to cover Paypal or credit card costs).
Best to purchase tickets at least 10 days before the event, as we usually sell out and they may not be available at the door. Proceeds of the event benefit the Cape Charles Museum. Call 757-331-1008 for more information. Parking lot parking available just east of the Museum. Remember to bring your oyster knives if you like to use them. They can also be purchased at the event.
