2015 Oyster Roast

Time is running out to get your tickets for the Greater Lexington Chamber’s annual Down on the Farm oyster roast, which is scheduled for next Thursday March 26 at Harmon’s Tree Farm from 6-10 pm. Get Your Tickets Now

The ordinary barn will be transformed into the perfect venue for a concert and oyster roast, creating an idyllic setting. Strings of lights hanging from the beams atop the high ceiling and the rock harmonies and sultry vocals of Tokyo Joe drifting through the air will produce the ultimate ambience.

Adding to the atmosphere will be the presence of Mercer House Estate Winery, Lexington’s first and only winery. Sample and enjoy the local and organic wines made right here in Lexington at the 12-acre winery, which consists of five vineyards. Mercer House not only makes wines, but also vinegar and Saba, a savory sauce made from grape skins. Saba dates back over 4000 years and requires over 300 hours of continuous heat to ensure the smooth delicate flavors are retained. Mercer House is working to develop Spicy, Sweet and Original Saba. They are also working to create Muscadine Balsamic Vinegar, as well as grape-seed oil.

Make sure you don’t miss this must-attend event and order your tickets today by clicking on the link below. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door.

The night will include oysters provided by US Foods and cooked to perfection by a crew from Clark’s, which has been doing oyster roasts for more than ten years. Clark’s has their own custom-made oyster cookers and shucking tables and performs about ten oyster roasts each year.

You will also be able to enjoy Hudson’s award-winning barbecue, dig in to Poultry in Motion’s chicken wings, and indulge in jambalaya from Private Property. Copper Horse Distilling, a hit at last year’s silent auction, will also be serving a specialty drink at the oyster roast.

So, don’t wait. Get your tickets now. Order today, or take a chance to win a pair, simply by sitting down.
