Our annual Oyster Roast features all-you-can-enjoy oysters and clams from Sapelo Sea Farms, local music from Velvet Caravan, delicious BBQ from Erica Davis Low Country Catering and SweetWater Brewing Company beer.
Located in the lowlands of coastal Georgia, on the banks of the Little Ogeechee River, the landscape of Grove Point Plantation and location of our 2019 Oyster Roast reflects the diversity of the region with large, bountiful gardens, rich woodlands and a marsh brimming with wildlife, including birds, fish and alligators.

Hands down, Charlie Phillips and Sapelo Sea Farms harvest some of the best clams and oysters we've ever enjoyed. Straight from Charlie's dock in Crescent, Georgia on Pelican Point, these bivalves could have landed in some of the finest restaurants on the East Coast - instead, they're on your table at our 2019 Oyster Roast!

OYSTER ROAST IN-KIND SPONSORS
Protecting our coast has been a priority of the Georgia Conservancy for 50 years. From the St. Marys River and Cumberland Island to the Port of Savannah and the beaches of Tybee, the Georgia Conservancy prides itself on being an advocate for and steward of our salt marsh, estuaries, maritime forests and towering dunes. We maintain an office in historic downtown Savannah, headed by Coastal Director Charles McMillan, and are working on a range of projects to protect this precious natural resource. The Oyster Roast is annual celebration of this important work and recognition of the incredible resources found along our more than 100 miles of sacred coastline.
