This is the 8th year of celebrating the mighty bi-valve.
Virginia is for oyster lovers! Come celebrate one of Virginia’s most iconic foods at the 8th Annual Shockoe on the Half-Shell festival at the 17th Street Farmers’ Market.
Enjoy oysters every way – raw, smoked, grilled, roasted, fried, and on the half shell – served up by some of Richmond’s favorite local restaurants like The Boathouse, Rappahannock, The Savory Grain, Halligan Bar & Grill, The Pig and Pearl, C’est La Vin, and more.
Pair your favorite oyster dish with an ice-cold beer or some crisp white wine or cider for a one-of-a-kind culinary delight!
