Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation and our host Waterman’s Brewing Company for our 2023 oyster roast, A Roast for the Coast! Gather with friends of the Federation to enjoy steamed local North Carolina oysters as well as clam chowder, corn chowder, and ham biscuits. In between sessions at the shucking table, enjoy live music, a raffle, and a silent auction filled with great local coastal items. New auction items added weekly! One drink is included (wine or beer) and additional drinks are available for purchase.

Proceeds from this event will support the Federation’s local efforts to restore our native oysters, including new reefs in the lower Cape Fear River. 

This event is rain or shine and mostly outdoors, so please dress for the weather!

Bring your own shucking knife- or use ours! Space is limited- get your tickets today!

You can also buy raffle tickets online or at the event to win a beach cruiser donated by Two Wheeler Dealer. The winning ticket will be drawn at 3:30 at the event. Must be present to win! Federation staff and immediate family members (including spouse, parent, legal guardian, sibling, or child) are not eligible to participate in the raffle.
