History Of Our Fall Fest & Oyster Roast
For 10 years, The Shellfish Company & Lynnhaven River NOW joined forces to host a very special event to raise money to restore our very own Lynnhaven River. Over the course of 10 years, we were able to raise thousands and thousands of dollars for Lynnhaven River NOW. The Lynnhaven River plays a vital role in our community as a form of transportation, a place for fishermen to find work, an escape from the office, and as a place for families to celebrate holidays.
Since the debut in Fall 2007 was so successful, the dynamic duo joined forces for 10 years to host a Fall Fest and Oyster Roast on the Shellfish Company & The Back Deck’s property, which conveniently overlooks the River the donated money went towards.
Our guests enjoyed live entertainment, amazing door prizes, local oysters on the half shell and on the grill, Carolina BBQ, steamed shrimp & clams, local beer & more!
