Oyster Fest

June 1 @ 4:30 pm 7:30 pm

Oyster Fest, presented by The American Gift Fund, is a 21+ event focused on outdoor games, live music, tasty food from Jamestown Catering, Prime Hospitality, Samuels Seafood Co. and cool beverages. All proceeds support the museum’s exhibits, programs and collections.

We’re also spotlighting the vital role of oysters and other bivalves in our waters through the impactful work of local organizations, including our own Collections & Research Division, Delaware Sea Grant, Delaware Wild Lands, Delaware Center for Inland Bays, Tri State Bird Rescue, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), Delaware Nature Society, American Littoral Society, and the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
