HATTERAS – This year’s Hatteras Island Oyster Roast from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at Oden’s Dock celebrates local seafood and a healthy coast while supporting storm relief and environmental restoration.

Fifty percent of the event’s proceeds will support local storm relief through the Hatteras United Methodist Church, and the other half will benefit the North Carolina Coastal Federation’s programs in the Outer Banks.

In addition to fresh oysters, attendees can enjoy seafood chowder and refreshments. There will also be homemade desserts available from the bake sale and live music from a local band, sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.

The first 200 people to purchase tickets in advance will receive a free high-quality, branded oyster knife. These knives are limited to one per household and can be picked up in person at the event.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online, at the federation’s Wanchese office or at Oden’s Dock. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

This event is planned to take place outdoors, so please dress accordingly. In the case of extremely bad weather, the event will take place at the Hatteras Village Civic Center.
