Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser

Saturday, October 15, 2022 @ 2:00pm
Historic Rosedale

Historic Rosedale’s Oyster Roast is a yearly tradition showcasing good food and good times while raising money for the preservation of Charlotte’s oldest wood frame house and the accompanying 9 acres of gardens. History in Charlotte is being lost every day; please help assure this does not occur with our unique and irreplaceable property located only 3 miles from the center of Charlotte.

We will be roasting the freshest oysters Virginia Beach style: over an open fire on steel plates covered in burlap until the gathering steam opens them at just the right moment. In addition, we’ll serve up a traditional Lowcountry boil: that tasty mix of shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn seasoned to perfection. We’ve even thought of your family and friends who might not enjoy these Southern delicacies (we promise not to hold it against them!). Hot dogs, baked beans, coleslaw and all the fixins round out the menu.

The Oyster Roast would not be complete without libations and music. Rusty Barkley and friends will be back playing favorite tunes; in addition, we welcome Queen City Groove and their a cappella magic. We are very excited that our N. Tryon neighbors at NoDa Brewing have kindly supplied us with a mix of their well-known brews to join Bird Song Brewery’s donation for a craft beer tasting. Beer and wine (available for adults 21 and over only), along with soft drinks and bottled water, will keep our guests happy and hydrated.

New this year, we’ve located our live music on the back porch of Historic Rosedale’s 1815 house. We will offer two seating areas for your enjoyment. The first will be front and center on the lawn in front of the bands under the shade of two large tents. Perfect for all you live music lovers! If you’d like a quieter experience, the Pavilion debuted last year as a prime location to enjoy the day. Sponsors may select their seating preference when making a sponsorship package purchase. All other seating – for general admission ticket holders - will be first come, first serve.

A wonderful afternoon full of great food, live music, and fellowship – all to fund the preservation of an important Charlotte landmark! And don’t forget, our Blacksmith shop will be open. Blacksmithing is an integral part of Historic Rosedale’s legacy; this is a great opportunity to experience this unique craft.
