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.
Member tickets must be reserved in advance and will sell out. Members may only reserve for what’s included in their membership benefits during the Member Reservation period. Any additional tickets may be purchased during Public Onsale.
