Feb. 8: The 35th Annual Stumpy Point Oyster Feast is back on!

By on January 13, 2020

Stumpy Point Life

Thank you all for the overwhelming show of love and support for this event! The 35th Annual Stumpy Point Oyster Feast will be held from noon until 5 on Saturday, February 8 at the Stumpy Point Community Center. The menu includes all-you-can-eat oysters – both in the shell to be shucked and fried. Fried fish, coleslaw, baked beans, potatoes, and hush puppies round out the menu.

Stumpy Point Civic Club met Friday and voted to continue the annual Oyster Feast which had been announced earlier as being cancelled. Money from the event will benefit the Civic Club and the Stumpy Point Volunteer Fire Department which is this year’s major sponsor.

Calls and emails flooded into the village after the earlier cancellation was announced. Callers said that they planned their trips to the Outer Banks based on the date of the feast. It had become a tradition with many families from both near and far.

Civic Club members decided the annual event not only served to bring people to the village tucked into the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, but also was a way to bring the village together by offering a way that both newcomers and generational residents could work together providing a peek at a unique commercial fishing village.

The cost of the feast is $30 for adults; $12 for children 12 and under. Bring plenty of cash! In addition to a fantastic meal there will be a bake sale, raffle, and sweatshirts for sale. Join us on February 8 and help us continue the tradition!
