5th Annual Oyster Week at Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay

From our friends at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay...

Fans of the tasty Eastern oyster will have their fill of exceptional food and fun during the Fifth Annual Oyster Week at Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina, which overlooks the Choptank River, a major tributary of the Bay, in Cambridge, Maryland. Beginning November 21st through the 29th (in the heart of oyster season) this unique event coincides with Thanksgiving to create a memorable holiday break.

Culinary highlights of this year’s Oyster Week include an oyster cookout featuring oysters on the half-shell and cooked to order, paired with beer or champagne; an oyster and wine tasting led by The Choptank Oyster Company, an oyster-inspired Family Iron Chef; and oyster cooking demos. An Eastern Shore-inspired Thanksgiving Feast will be held complete with a Waterman’s Raw Bar.

Oyster-inspired recreation includes River Marsh Golf Club’s Oyster Cup, a nine-hole scramble; oyster shell ornament making; a magic show; a Canvas and Wine painting party, an indoor arcade; and more. Aquaculture Education will be on hand throughout Oyster Week, sharing a glimpse of their work with the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Horn Point Oyster Hatchery.
