Get ready for an experience you won't forget at Mermaid's Kiss Oyster Fest, Baltimore's premier event to eat, drink, and be merry! Benefitting Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), the festivities cap off its 25th anniversary and celebrate achievements including 8.5 billion oysters planted throughout the MD portion of the Chesapeake, establishing the largest shell recycling alliance in the nation, and more!

Enjoy creative small plates from top chefs, live music by Pressing Strings, an open bar, and plenty of freshly shucked oysters. The evening will also feature a Bay-themed silent auction - and mermaids galore!

Restaurants: Capital Grille, Faidley's Seafood, Gunther & Co., La Food Marketa, Loch Bar, Phillips Seafood Restaurant, Ryleigh's Oyster, Thames Street Oyster House, Vida, and desserts by the Classic Catering People. Maryland's Best Seafood will be serving up snakehead and blue catfish.
