2015 Oyster Roast

The main event at the Greater Lexington Chamber’s annual oyster roast, of course will be all the oysters you can eat. But the undercard is equally as appetizing, featuring delicious food from Poultry in Motion, Private Property and Hudson’s Classic Catering.

Poultry in Motion will have its food truck on site serving chicken wings, always a crowd favorite. Private Property, a local restaurant that values capturing the southern lifestyle in a way that is appreciated and authentic, will be serving jambalaya. And Hudson’s will have its award-winning barbecue for all to enjoy.

US Foods will provide the oysters that will be 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 for businesses or people associated with their industry.

Tokyo Joe, one of the South’s most popular musical artists, will play the event. The band, which debuted in 1996, is known for its rock style and sultry vocals. Tokyo Joe has opened for well-known groups including Bachman Turner Overdrive, Sister Hazel, Georgia Satellites and Marshall Tucker and performed in world-class venues such as Carolina Coliseum and House of Blues.

Copper Horse Distilling, a hit at last year’s silent auction, will be serving a specialty drink at the oyster roast.

The event, scheduled for March 26, will be held at Harmon’s Tree Farm from 6-10 pm.
