Crab & Oyster Feast set at Crisfield’s Tawes Museum for October 1

(CRISFIELD, MD – September 2, 2016) On Saturday October 1 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Crisfield Heritage Foundation is hosting a “Pick & Shuck” crab and oyster feast on the waterfront lawn of the J. Millard Tawes Historical Museum in Crisfield, Md.

Along with live music, guests will enjoy steamed local crabs, shucked oysters, beer, wine, and other foods and drinks. Volunteers from the Crisfield Police Department will be grilling oysters for the waterfront event, which also features a 50/50 raffle and door prizes, including a Smith Island Cake.

“You pick, and we’ll shuck,” commented CHF Board member and event chair Mary Ann Peterman. “All you need to bring is your own mallet and crab knife to this important fundraiser.”

Tickets are limited to the first 100 people, with all proceeds benefiting the Foundation and its entities, including the Tawes Museum, Ward Workshop, and Cedar Island Marsh Sanctuary, among others. Local businesses are supporting the fundraiser through generous in-kind and cash donations, and will be acknowledged at the event.

Tickets are $40 per person, and include live music and a menu featuring raw and roasted oysters on the half shell, steamed crabs, corn on the cob, hot dogs, beer, wine, soda, and water. In the event of rain, the crab and oyster feast will be moved under the large pavilion at Somers Cove Marina.
