NC Oyster Week
Join us each October as we “shellebrate” the history, culture, economy, and ecology of oysters in North Carolina!
In 2022, NC Oyster Week will be October 10-16.
Oysters play an important role in coastal communities. In the environment, oysters improve water quality and create habitat for other animals. Their unique flavor makes them a desirable dish, supporting the livelihoods of watermen and local economies across the state. The N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, NC Oyster Trail, North Carolina Sea Grant, and the NC Coastal Federation partner each year to bring you a week of oyster facts, resources, and programming.
We will be sharing on social media using the hashtags #NCOysterWeek #NCOysters #GiveAShuck.
