Area: Middle Shore
Onancock Oyster Adventure


The perfect pairing on Onancock Creek: Paddling, Oysters & Wine!

Did you know there are 14 million oysters being grown on Virginia's Eastern Shore, including Onancock Creek?

Find out how they're being grown, why it's important to the health of our Creek and Bay, then taste them during a waterfront oyster and wine feast on Sunday, Oct. 14, 1-5 p.m.

First, Bill & Mary Burnham of SouthEast Expeditions will lead an easy kayak trip to the oyster beds on Onancock Creek. Meet oyster farmer Peter Vasquenza and learn about this growing and vital industry. No experience necessary.

Next, we'll land at Sycamore Bend, an historic waterfront estate on Finneys Creek, newly operating as a special events venue.

Finally, taste Chatham Vineyards wines paired with Onancock oysters prepared three ways by Chef Johnny Mo of Mallards: on the half shell, crab-stuffed and Oyster Rockefeller Chowder, plus assorted canapes.

Tickets are $75 in advance; $65 for those who wish to bring their own kayaks.

Those who do not wish to paddle to the oyster bed are welcome for oysters and wine from 3-5 p.m.

Event will be held rain or shine.

Space is limited, so get your tickets soon for this one-of-a-kind experience.
