The first annual Oysterfest, during the last weekend in August was a huge success. Four thousand oysters were shucked and eaten by over 400 people on a perfect afternoon. Over twenty people showed up to compete in the Oyster shucking contest. It was won by Block Island born and raised Perry Phillips of Block Island Oyster Company. We turned over the BIMI oyster lease to he and Dave Deffley and they are doing a great job!
