Annapolis Oyster Roast and Sock Burning

'

Editorial Review

This annual rite of spring features live music from the Oyster Boys and Sly 45, an oyster shucking contest, family activities and, most importantly, all-you-can-eat oysters. (Burgers, hot dogs, barbecue sodas and beer are available for an extra fee.)

It also includes the ritual burning of the socks to welcome warm weather.

VIP tickets include tastings of oyster dishes from Annapolis restaurants and a souvenir T-shirt.
