Our Signature Annual Events

Whiskies for Wildlife

Featuring more than 225 Scottish single malt whiskies and world-class single malt, grain, blended and antique whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Taiwan, the United States of America and more.

Sumptuous small plates devised especially for this event by the Manor House’s Executive Chef to complement the whiskey offerings will be served at several stations throughout the hall and patio overlooking beautiful Rich Passage.  A raw oyster bar will be serving fresh local Port Madison Petites harvested that morning to guests.  It will be an afternoon to remember! All proceeds benefit the Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

This event sells out quickly every year so be sure to check back with us!

Oyster New Year

Join Elliott’s Oyster House for the 2019 Oyster New Year celebrating the annual return of the peak shellfish season! As the cloudy, cool fall weather moves into the Puget Sound region, the icy north Pacific Ocean current entice shellfish to come into their prime; developing a crisp, firm texture and clean taste characteristics.

Eat, drink and be eco-friendly at the sell-out event and the biggest oyster party on the West Coast! Featuring 30+ varieties of local oysters shucked to order at our 150-foot oyster bar, a fresh seafood buffet, live music and more.  All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

A few special features include a raffle with fabulous prizes, the Oyster Luge and the Most Beautiful Oyster contest.

You can buy tickets in advance beginning June 1, 2019.  You don’t want to miss this amazing event!

Walrus & Carpenter

Hosted by Taylor Shellfish Farms as a benefit for the Puget Sound Restoration Fund, the Walrus & Carpenter picnics provide the ultimate oyster-eating experience.  The nighttime, low tide picnic takes place by lantern and moonlight in Taylor’s Totten Inlet oyster bed. Icy gusts of wind off the bay will invigorate your experience. Take a shucking lesson before dining on these plump, sweet oysters just rousted from their beds. Devour the freshly opened delicacies paired with award-wining “oyster wines” served in sparkling Reidel stemware. The perfect blend of magic and madness. As the tide rises, revel in a blazing bonfire awaiting you on the beach and savor a steaming cup of chowder. This is an experience not to be missed.  All proceeds for these unique events benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

Thank you to everyone who attended our winter of 2019 low tide picnics!  What an amazing adventure we all had at the events.  Please consider joining us next year.  Tickets will go on sale November 1, 2019.

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery

The Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery event is back for 2019, hosted once again by Bainbridge Organic Distillers.  Join us for an afternoon sampling local oysters and craft vodka cocktails.

In addition to raw oyster service, we’ll be serving oysters off the grill with lemon, garlic and a touch of red pepper flake and deep fried oysters are the starring ingredient in a hearty chowder.

Puget Sound Restoration Fund will once again be providing the oysters for the event – including our native Port Madison Petites, raised right around the shores of Bainbridge Island.

All Proceeds will benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery will be hosted in early June of 2019, the exact date to be determined.  Check back here or at Bainbridge Organic Distillers events page.
