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
