National Oyster Day 2021

National Oyster Day 2021

To celebrate National Oyster Day, let’s show our support for the restaurants who weathered a tough 2020 by enjoying the Bay’s Bounty all weekend long, Aug. 5 – 8, 2021!

These Bay-friendly businesses are critical partners in ORP’s shell recycling and oyster restoration efforts, so don’t be shy about slurping. View a list of participating restaurants – and any specials or promotions they’re offering – below.

Make your plans, get out there, and EAT to your heart’s content!
