Due to the continued restrictions on public gatherings, and in the interest of public safety, we regret to inform you that the Apalachicola Oyster Cook-Off for 2021 is being postponed to January 2022! Make plans to attend the Oyster Cook-Off to benefit the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department in 2022! This annual event is held Friday and Saturday before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in downtown Historic Apalachicola at Riverfront Park. All proceeds go directly towards paying for the brand new fire truck they were able to purchase a few years ago, due to this sole fundraising event!

We have cookbooks available for purchase at Cafe Con Leche and Oyster City Brewing Company, if you’d like to support our Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department during this time! Thanks for your continued support and be safe.

The event features a silent auction, oysters galore, shrimp, smoked mullet, hot dogs, hamburgers, local beer, live music, kids’ activities, dancing performances and a 5K run! Enter your best recipe and be a contestant in the oyster cook-off or just come out and enjoy a day of wonderful food, refreshments and music. We always welcome donations and volunteers to help make this wonderful event a success. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer.
