Spring Oyster Celebration 2022

Spring Oyster Crawl pics

Saturday & Sunday, April 23 and 24, 2022

This year’s Spring Oyster Crawl will be a “Spring Oyster Celebration”. Instead of “crawling” from winery to winery, we encourage visitors to spend the day at their favorite participating Trail winery to enjoy wine and oyster pairings.

Reservations may be required at some wineries. We encourage you to check with participating wineries to learn more about their events, including hours and safety guidelines. Several wineries may also feature live music.
