Family-friendly Hilton Head Oyster Festival

The Island Recreation Association and title sponsor South Carolina Bank & Trust will host the 10th annual Hilton Head Oyster Festival on Fri. Nov. 11, Sat. Nov. 12 & Sun. Nov. 13, 2011. Since it’s the 10th annual, we’re making it a big deal this year by adding Friday night for the first time and having the legendary Bobby Ryder perform from 5 – 8 pm. Saturday and Sunday will be from 11 – 5pm and as usual this all takes place at Shelter Cove Community Park.

Musical line-up includes Bobby Ryder on Friday, Candace Woodson & the Domino Theory Band, the Good Times Band and the Matt Mackelcan Band are just a few of the bands that play Saturday and Sunday.

This family event features oysters and local shrimp from Captain. Woody’s and for those non-oyster lovers, Street Meet is on hand cooking hamburgers & hot dogs. All food is sold separately. Live music and a kid’s zone including moon bounces, carnival games and prizes are on hand for the kids. Thanks to Custom Audio Video, football fans can catch both the NFL and college games at the park.

Don’t forget to check out the Holiday Craft Show and Silent Auction featuring items such as rounds of golf, art from local artisans, and gift certificates from local restaurants are all up for bid.

Admission: $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.
