Oyster Roast - Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad

Oyster Roast

We had a great time!

44th Annual Oyster Roast

Sunday, March 8th, 2020
Virginia Beach Convention Center

What’s it all about?

One of our favorite events, the annual Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad’s Oyster Roast & Craft Beer Festival is our largest fundraiser of the year. With the donations we receive, we are able to continue to purchase the advanced lifesaving equipment we need to answer more than 14,000 calls every year. The treatment and transport we give our community costs you absolutely nothing. Your support is vital in maintaining this high level of service.

What made it so much fun?

  • Raw, roasted and fried oysters
  • Local craft beer
  • BBQ, fried chicken, sides and soft drinks
  • The Michael Clark Band
  • Casino tables
  • Silent and live auctions + raffles
  • Rescue squad demonstrations and equipment
  • Local artisans
  • Children’s activities
