The Barrier Islands Center’s Annual Oyster Roast is their signature fundraising event. Not only is it THE BEST PARTY ON THE EASTERN SHORE; by participating, you help to preserve and perpetuate the Shore’s unique coastal heritage and do so much for our community. Wolcott Rivers Gates has been a long time supporter of the BIC and we are pleased to be able to take on the role of presenting sponsor for the 2017 Oyster Roast. 

The Oyster Roast is an opportunity to celebrate the bounty and beauty of Eastern Shore. Local oyster houses on the Shore generously manage the roasting and steaming of oysters and clams. A silent auction showcases a broad spectrum of local talent, thanks to the local artisans, artists, restaurants, entrepreneurs and other businesses who generously donate their lovingly-produced items to the event. Proceeds from the Oyster Roast help keep the doors of the Barrier Islands Center open with free admission to all.
