Get ready for an experience you won’t soon forget at Mermaid’s Kiss Oyster Fest! Whether you like them raw, fried, baked, or boozy, we’ve got oysters from all across the Chesapeake Bay region served any way you want ‘em! Now in its 8th year, Mermaid’s Kiss Oyster Fest is the premiere event in Baltimore to eat, drink and be merry as mermaids — all while supporting large-scale oyster restoration projects in the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy creative bites from some of the region’s top chefs, live music, open bar and as many freshly shucked oysters as physically possible. We’ll also have a Bay-themed silent auction, oyster shooter station, photo booth and mermaids galore. In fact, this year we’re giving guests the option to add mermaid/merman flair to their party ensemble. Best costume takes home a heaping bushel of fresh, Chesapeake Bay oysters. Proceeds from Mermaid’s Kiss Oyster Fest go right back into the Bay, supporting ORP’s mission to build a healthy and sustainable native oyster population. Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018 from 6-9 pm at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
