Head to the waterfront along Hatteras village at historic Oden’s Dock for this old-fashioned oyster roast that gives back to the island’s coastal environment. The annual event features a world of fresh goodies for attendees to enjoy, which includes plenty of fresh oysters that are ready for shucking, fresh seafood chowder, cornbread, and other snacks and refreshments. There’s also a bake sale planned so that attendees can indulge their sweet tooth after they have had their fill of the array of local seafood.

Live music is also slated for the event, and staff from the North Carolina Coastal Federation will also be on hand to answer questions and chat with residents and visitors. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the myriad of programs orchestrated by the North Carolina Coastal Federation for oyster education and restoration throughout the N.C. shoreline. Tickets are available in advance, or can be purchased on the day of the event on the edge of Oden’s Dock. With a gorgeous backdrop, lots of food to go around, and plenty of fun for all involved, the Hatteras Island Oyster Roast is a favorite annual wintertime event for everyone who loves seafood, and who loves the local island community.
