Airlie Gardens invites friends and family of the Gardens to enjoy an oyster feast along the banks of Bradley Creek, a tradition rooted in Airlie’s history. Beginning around 1905, extravagant oyster roasts were hosted on the property. Guests came from far and near to enjoy the warm southern climate and celebrate a local delicacy. This tradition was revived in 2000 and has become our most important annual fundraising event for Airlie’s Environmental Education Programs, which provides hands-on environmental education for thousands of schoolchildren and garden guests each year.
