So. Just in case you aren’t sure what to do with yourselves on Sunday, November 14, 2010, or if you’ve arrived on the island Saturday too early to check in to your vacation rental, and you just can’t decide where to park your car and you’re hungry from the long drive or flight… well, have we got the answer for you. Barely two miles down the road from The Vacation Company (the people with whom you’ve entrusted your family’s getaway-together-week), is Shelter Cove Park, where the annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival will be amped for two days of oysters, beer, oysters, art, oysters, music, oysters, and… did I mention the oysters?
Where: Shelter Cove Park
When: Sat 11/13 – Sun 11/14
11 am – 5 pm both days
What: Steamed oysters, fried oysters, oysters chowder, shrimp, chili, hotdogs, hamburgers, and more.
What Else: A holiday craft show, silent auction, kid zone, and laser tag too!
Music: Chilly Willy Band & Matt MacKelcan, Peter Buonaiuto, Stepping Stones & White Liquor.
If you’ve somehow missed the indulgence of an authentic lowcountry oyster roast with all the accompanying sides, spirits, and music, then you haven’t really experienced what makes Hilton Head and South Carolina environs so alluring in the off-season. Besides the incredibly warm afternoon temperatures, marmalade sunsets, and indescribably perfect golf days, the island invites you to enjoy its most freshest and delectable delicacies during the best month of the year in which to enjoy them, according to any lowcountry shrimper/fisherman or almanac you may run across in your travels.
