Fall is here on Hilton Head Island and it is oyster season! Many of our local restaurants and organizations celebrate with a number of events and menu items made from the oysters from the beds right off the Island. If you are planning a stay this fall in a Hilton Head Vacation Rental getting oysters is a MUST!
Going to a restaurant is an easy way to enjoy the local oysters, but more fun is attending a festival or oyster roast! The Hilton Head Island Oyster Festival is a two-day event held each November. The 2016 event highlights steamed, fried and stewed oysters along with other delicious food for non-oyster eaters! There will be live entertainment, kid zone, marshmallow roasting and Sports Lounge for those fall Football games!
Oyster roasts are held at a number of area locations. Or you can make oysters in the fully-equipped kitchen of your vacation home or villa! You will be able to purchase local oysters at Benny Hudson’s or call the Piggy Wiggly in Coligny Plaza ahead of time and they can get some for you.
Whichever way you decide to enjoy the Lowcountry oysters, you are bound to appreciate the freshness and diversity on the ways they are prepared and served on Hilton Head Island!
