On Saturday, November 24 the Cape Charles Historical Society will hold its 21st annual Oyster Roast from 4 until 8 at the Museum – note the earlier time again 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 will be served starting at 4 and until 6 PM, with live music by the local Side Porch Band 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 are $40, $15 for children 7 to 12, (under 7 free) and will be available in early October by cash or check from Periwinkles at 215 Mason Ave. in Cape Charles, or by credit card* from our website Capecharlesmuseum.org. Also, on sale at the Museum, with a limited number, pending availability, at the door (757-331-1008). Event sponsors are most welcome, starting at $120 which includes 2 free tickets. Contact Kimb Denny (757-607-6483) for more information.
* credit cards have $2 surcharge per ticket to cover card fees; credit cards also accepted at the Museum
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 slightly east of the Museum. Remember to bring your oyster knives if you like to use them. They can also be purchased at the event.
