Long-time caterer to HBF’s annual roasts, Michael Reeves will be back to serve oysters, pulled pork, barbecued chicken, red rice, salad, and dessert in two separate servings at 4:30 or 6:30 p.m. Two bar drinks will be included in the ticket price with additional drink tickets available at a cash bar. The annual oyster roast exemplifies the best in outdoor Lowcountry experiences — great food and beverages around open fires, the live music of the Bull Grapes of Frogmore all against the  backdrop of the marshes and creek. The plantation is located on Seaside Road near its intersection with Club Bridge Road.

Tickets are $50 per person for members, $60 per person for non-members. Parking is conveniently located at the plantation. Reservations may be made by calling HBF at 379-3331 or by ordering online at www.historicbeaufort.org/shop.
