Oyster Stroll

With a heavy heart, we announce the cancelation of the 2023 Oyster Stroll scheduled for Saturday, October 14. With cool temperatures and steady rain forecasted all day on Saturday, we felt this decision was necessary. We want you, our valued stroll attendees, to have the best time at our events, and the last thing we want to do is disappoint you with a less-than-satisfactory stroll experience. We also want our strolls to be sustainable, which means protecting our relationships with our vendors. We must consider that our vendors spend considerable time and money preparing for and traveling to these events, and if we don’t have the critical mass to support their efforts, they suffer a great loss.

Saturday October 14, 2023

Enjoy local spirits, live music, vendors and delicious food al fresco! Live entertainment featuring The Amish Outlaws.  

The Oyster Stroll is an event designed to raise awareness about the importance of oyster aquaculture in the Chesapeake Bay.  Stroll through Downtown Westminster as you delight in fresh oysters, live music and samples of wine, spirits and beer.

Farm raised oysters are a sustainable product that is bringing jobs to rural portions of Maryland, while helping clean the waters of the Bay.

The event directly supports CCA Maryland's Living Reef Action Campaign.
