We have several joyful events throughout the year celebrating our region's amazing resources and benefitting the ongoing work we do.

What's Happening Now

Coast to Coast Oyster Ride

A cross-country oyster extravaganza? Yes, please. We are excited to benefit from the inaugural Coast to Coast Oyster Ride!

Starting May 25th, a team from will spend ~9 weeks riding ~3,200 miles from Washington State across the country to Montauk, Long Island, NY. The adventurous cyclists are doing so in the name of fun and fundraising, with all donations to their effort to be shared between PSRF and the Moriches Bay Project, a group focused on in-water restoration in service of clean water. Their support means so much to us, as does their creative approach to fundraising.

Follow along with the team HERE as they take their ride across America and stay tuned to our social media as we post their progress. The team will be updating the ride daily with photos, videos and even a drone!

Show your support for their effort by donating through the PSRF webpage and denoting that your contribution is for the Coast to Coast Oyster Ride.  Ride on, folks!  The oysters are waiting.

A big thank you to West Seattle Brewing Company, Alki Beach Pub and Harry’s Beach House for hosting the festivities!  And a round of applause to all the bands that entertained everyone all afternoon!

We look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Our Signature Annual Events

Oyster New Year

Thank you to all who joined us at Elliott’s Oyster House this November 2nd, 2019 for Oyster New Year, where we celebrated 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.

We ate and drank to our stomach’s content at the sell-out event and the biggest oyster party on the West Coast! 30+ varieties of local oysters were shucked to order at the 150-foot oyster bar, plus a fresh seafood buffet, live music and more.  All proceeds benefited Puget Sound Restoration Fund.  Look for tickets to the 2020 event to go on sale next summer, and until then, slurp up!

Walrus & Carpenter

Thank you all who attended this year’s low-tide picnics.

A special thanks to the Taylor Shellfish Staff and to Browne Family Vineyards and Gruet NV Sauvage!

Be sure to check back next fall for our 2021 low-tide picnics hosted by Taylor Shellfish Farms as a benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

You don’t want to miss this unique event next year!

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery

Look for the Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery event in 2020, hosted by Bainbridge Organic Distillers.  It will be a wonderful afternoon sampling local oysters and craft vodka cocktails. In addition to raw oyster service, we serve 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 provide oysters for the event, including our native Port Madison Petites, raised right on the shores of Bainbridge Island.

All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.  Check back here or at Bainbridge Organic Distillers events page for this great event in 2020!

Whiskies for Wildlife

We’ve decided to cancel the 2020 Whiskies For Wildlife event, presented by Bainbridge Organic Distillers. Typically, this divine event takes place in Fall, and features 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. We hope to have this event in future years, so check back in 2021. This event always sells out, so when it is next held, look to nab tickets around the first week of July.
