5th Annual Oyster Roast and Bloody Mary Contest

We are proud to announce that the 5th Annual Surfrider Oyster Roast & Bloody Mary Contest will once again be held at “On the Halfshell” in Murrells Inlet!

Join us Sunday February 25th 2018 for a full day of Live Local Music, All-U-Can-Eat Oysters, New South Brews, local Vendors, Food Trucks, and some of the best Bloody Mary recipes on the beach sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Last year, we hosted over 30 Bloody Mary teams from local families, businesses, and restaurants with a variety of recipes and garnishes, which are quickly becoming a fan favorite.

Show your ID, Buy tickets redeemable for 3oz samples from 11am-5pm, and cast your vote for this year’s People’s Choice Award! Participants will receive a souvenir Surfrider tasting glass.

All-U-Can-Eat Oysters are just $25 from 11am-5pm steamed hot and fresh! Bring your own oyster knives/gloves or purchase them for just $4. Please, remember to separate your trash and oyster shells as all shells will be collected by South Carolina DNR and used to replenish local oyster beds.

Over 50 local artists, merchants, chefs, and non-profits supply everything from jewelry to clothing to Bubba Love’s Fried Chicken Mac n’ Cheese. Bring your appetite and a recyclable shopping bag to take home unique gifts made right here by your friends and neighbors.

We are excited to once again welcome New South Brewery – a Grand Strand Surfrider sponsor since 1998 – and feature $4 drafts of their Award Winning White Ale, Nut Brown, IPA, and Porter. Bring your ID and check in with event staff to get your local brew on! Bring your own mug or purchase a 16oz Surfrider cup for just $1.

Wave 104.1’s Scott Mann and Crash from 96.1 KZQ will emcee the Main Stage from 11am-6pm, featuring live music from your favorite local bands. Tune in to Wave 104.1 or follow Scott Mann on Facebook to catch this year’s music lineup!

“On the Halfshell” will serve a limited event menu and host an After Party again this year with live music and a bonfire from 6-10pm at the Tiki Bar. Everyone is invited to stick around and keep rockin!
