Mermaid’s Kiss Oyster Fest 2017




On behalf of the Oyster Recovery Partnership, thank you to all our guests, sponsors, partners, chefs, vendors and volunteers who came together and made this event possible. 

For the last 23 years our mission has remained the same — to increase the number of oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. We are committed to developing programs that make a difference, and searching for innovative ways to improve habitat and water quality in the years to come. Your attendance and support of Mermaid’s Kiss means we are able to make an even bigger impact in building a healthier Cheseapeake Bay. Thank you.
