One event on January 28, 2022 at 12:00 pm
Annual Oyster Cook-Off to benefit the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department! The event is held every year on the Friday and Saturday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in downtown Historic Apalachicola at Riverfront Park. All proceeds go directly towards paying for the brand new fire truck they were able to purchase a few years ago due to this sole fundraising event!
This year’s 12th Annual Oyster Cook-Off will be held on January 14-15, 2022.
The event features a silent auction, oysters galore, shrimp, smoked mullet, hot dogs, hamburgers, local beer, live music, kids’ activities, dancing performances, and a 5K run!
Enter your best recipe and be a contestant in the oyster cook-off or just come out and enjoy a day of wonderful food, refreshments, and music.
