The Chesapeake Oyster and Beer Festival is an all-you-care-to-eat extravaganza featuring more than 24,000 oysters. Raw, steamed, roasted, and Rockefellered, all are served fresh by world-class shuckers. Future presidential candidates, however, will want to slurp down a few of the founding fathers' favorite oysters, Charleston's roasted oysters. If you prefer food that requires chewing, the festival also offers a ton of seafood, meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes.
Once you've loaded up a table of empty shells and made a few bad "Aw, shucks" puns, wash it all down with any of the 32 craft beers, more than 30 wines, or a few spirits. The beer menu includes Guinness, Ommegang Hennepin, Pyramid Fling, Magic Hat Vinyl, Woodchuck ciders, Widmer Hefeweizen, and many more. The Chesapeake Oyster and Beer Festival will also feast your ears with a full schedule of live music and exhibits.
