Attend an event


Our partners throw great oyster festivals! By simply attending one of these events, you’re making an impact in our efforts to restore the local oyster population. In some cases, proceeds from the event directly support Oyster Recovery Partnership programming, and in others, the shell collected will be circulated through our shell recycling program and reused as host shells for planting more oysters into the Chesapeake Bay. If you’d like your event added to the list below, please contact us at


Shuck Like a Pro: Shucking Workshop and Old Pulteney Pairing

Thursday, January 17 | 5:30- 7 p.m.
Federal House: 22 Market Space, Annapolis, Maryland

Interested in honing your oyster shucking skills or looking to learn? Join ORP at Federal House, where our master shucker will guide you step by step using hands-on instruction. A $30 fee covers all supplies including oysters, gloves, your shucking station and a “graduation gift” – your very own knife! Included in the ticket price, Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky will be offering three unique pours: their flagship 12-Year, Navigator, and Stroma Liqueur. One of the most northerly distilleries on the Scottish mainland, Old Pulteney’s extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a product that’s bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea — and pairs great with oysters!

Must be 21+ to participate. Space is limited to the first 20 registrants – and it typically sells out quickly! Buy tickets here.
