Hilton Head Island Gearing Up for 10th Annual Oyster Festival


If you live on an Island in the South, you gotta be an oyster lover! Hilton Head Island is known for its fresh local oysters and we even have a festival to celebrate this wonderful bounty. The 10th Annual Hilton Head Oyster Festival is a 2-day event that gives Island residents and visitors an opportunity to come out and taste our local oysters and shrimp, listen to live entertainment and enjoy the beautiful fall weather on Hilton Head Island.


Hosted by the The Island Recreation and South Carolina Bank & Trust, the Hilton Head Oyster Festival will take place on Saturday November 12 & Sunday November. 13, 2011 from 11 am until 5 pm. This two-day event will be held at the Shelter Cove Community Park and will feature a variety of oysters and shrimp, an assortment of beers from Budweiser and a collection of wines from Rollers Wine and Spirits.


This family event features live music and a kid’s zone including moon bounces, carnival games, prizes and much more. Football fans can catch both the NFL and college games on big screen TV’s at the Festival. Captain Woody’s Bar and Grill will be on hand to cook up the best oysters and local shrimp. There will also be other food, including grilled chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs available for those who are not oyster fans.


The Festival events also include a Holiday Craft Show and Silent Auction featuring items such as rounds of golf, art from local artisans, and gift certificates from local restaurants up for bid. Admission is $5/per person with children 12 and under being free. All proceeds go to the Island Recreation Association’s Children’s scholarship fund which insures that “no child is denied” our recreation opportunities.


Make plans to attend the 10th Annual Oyster Festival and bring the family to enjoy all of the festivities. For more information visit www.islandreccenter.org, call 843/681-7273 or email info@islandrecccenter.org.
