We shucked it up at Maine Oysterfest!
Wow! What a crazy weekend! We had high goals and expectations for the Maine Oysterfest that were blown far out of the water and we cannot thank each and every person involved enough. Saturday morning we had many members of our Maine Oyster Company
crew on deck to help with loading up and setting up at Thompson’s Point, Brick South location. We had some early arrivals from Madeleine Point Oysters and Spartan Sea farms whose helpful hands made the hard work seem easy. Mid afternoon our Boom-Shucka-Lucka ambassadors arrived ready to work and we are grateful to you all, coming ready to represent all that Maine Oyster Company community stands for! Learn more about the Boom Shuck-a-Lucka Club here!
Once set up was complete, the people started rolling in. We welcomed more than 130 VIP’s for early entry, and we learned that more than 400 tickets sold for the event! We are grateful to each and every grower and supporter who represented our piece of the Maine aquaculture industry
so fantastically. We hope that you will all join us again in the future, as we cannot imagine doing this without you! We were blown away by the individual spin each oyster farm brought to their tables, the merchandise and as always we are fascinated by how unique each shell is and how it represents your special spot off our beautiful coast.
Beyond the growers, supporters and MOC crew and ambassadors, and influencers, we are grateful to have partnered with Harvest on the Harbor
to put on the Maine Oysterfest! In just one year we grew from 13 farms to 30, and from 300 tickets sold to 400. We jumped to a bigger and better location and we believe the opportunity for growth is without question. We owe special thanks to all who contributed to our giveaway and to each and every attendee who entered!
We have saved our biggest thank you for last because there would be no Maine Oysterfest
, without oyster lovers, who purchased tickets, and came out and slurpped, drank and enjoy the fantastic music at this event! We hope you all slurpped many of oysters, gathered plenty of goodies from the farms and we hope that you’ll be returning for more fun next year. And beyond that, if you learned to shuck from our fabulous friends Ben Wovlen or Rifko of Oyster XO
, maybe you are thinking you wouldn’t mind having a couple oysters more often. Maybe sent directly to your doorstep? Well, we hope you know that we included special coupons in each goodie bag, one of which is 25% off your first order of oysters sent with FREE overnight shipping
directly to your doorstep. There are 4 other special offers that we hope you don’t miss either. To those who enrolled in our new monthly Boom-Shucka-Lucka oyster club - we appreciate you!
