The Apalachicola Oyster Cook-off was started in 2010 by a group of concerned citizens wanting to raise money for the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department. They saw the departmentā€™s need for additional funds to help purchase a new fire truck. A group was started to get the community talking, what could the people of Apalachicola do, unique to our area to raise money?? OYSTERS, of course! Eastpoint Fire Department has the Rib Cook-Off, St. George Island Fire Department has the Chili Cook-Off, it only seemed fitting for the Apalachicola Fire Department to have an Oyster Cook-Off. Please help us in putting out all the fires in Apalachicola. These wonderful people are not only firemen/women, but our first responders, police officers and most importantly, VOLUNTEERS!
