DC on the Half Shell is a one-of-a-kind event which honors an exemplary steward of the Bay with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Conservationist of the Year Award. This event allows the honoree to celebrate their strides in conservation surrounded by 600+ of their friends, family, business partners, and bay-loving peers.
Not only is this a celebration of the honoree but a celebration of the Bay’s most critical natural filters: the oyster. CBF invites oyster farmers from across the Chesapeake to serve an assortment of the finest (and sustainable!) oysters the Bay and its rivers have to offer. In addition to our oyster stations, we offer a full buffet dinner, passed hors d'oeuvres, and dessert buffet. DC on the Half Shell is a celebration of Chesapeake Bay flavors!
This event has helped CBF expand within the D.C. community, raise awareness of the importance of oysters, and raise more than $3 million toward saving the Bay. We hope you will join us for the 2024 DC on the Half Shell!
By supporting DC on the Half Shell and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, you are helping to accomplish amazing feats like adding millions of baby oysters to our waterways. With the vital funding DC on the Half Shell raises—and with you by our side—we can finish the job.
