Billion Oyster Party

Get treated to the ultimate oyster experience as we celebrate the movement to restore NY Harbor and our local marine environment. Mingle with 50 oyster farmers who will be shucking and serving their delicacies and enjoy bites from 25 of NYC’s top restaurants while learning about oyster culture and restoration. Speak to NY Harbor School students about their work on the Billion Oyster Project. Finally, wash it all down with brews, sodas, spirits and wines from local partners while watching the BOP All-Star Shucking Championship!

Proceeds from the event directly support Billion Oyster Projects restoration and education work. The hands-on science of reef construction and monitoring is executed through community oysters reefs, in-school restoration-based STEM learning opportunitiesvolunteer programscommunity science and research, and restaurant shell collection. Together, we can revive our shared blue space, creating a healthier, happier, and more resilient city—one oyster reef at a time.
