Brooklyn Oyster Riot, presented by NY Oyster Week and W&T Seafood, is an opportunity for guests to meet, mingle with and learn from oyster farmers in a fun and immersive oyster experience. The event will showcase some of the finest oysters in the world, as well as the stories of those who grow and distribute them. Come meet your oyster farmers and ask questions as they hand you an oyster carefully cultivated from seed to half-shell! On offer will be approximately 10 oyster varieties from the East & West Coasts, an open bar with Brooklyn Brewery's beers on tap, plus a selection of wines and other beverages, plus a full array of cheese & charcuterie, mezze dips and bruschetta to snack on. Best of all, all oyster shells from the event will be recycled and donated to the Billion Oyster Project and New York Harbor School.
NY Oyster Week is a celebration of the oyster's extraordinary role in the history, culture, cuisine, economy and ecology of New York. Each September, we curate fun and engaging oyster-centric events for oyster enthusiasts, chefs, oyster farmers and other beneFISHiaries. W&T Seafood is a family-run distributor based in Brooklyn that specializes in premium shellfish. We also offer online shopping, events, and oyster shucking classes for the bivalve-curious.
