We take pride in celebrating our region's amazing resources through joyful events that benefit the ongoing work we do.

What's Happening Now

Oyster New Year

It’s a joy every year to be swept up in the great celebration of Northwest oysters. 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.

Hats off to Elliott’s Oyster House for finding a way to keep the Oyster New Year tradition alive in this most unusual of years. This year, we will celebrate the annual return of the peak shellfish season a bit differently with special oyster-centric offerings throughout the month of November. Enjoy an incredible Oyster New Year Dinner, At-Home Oyster & Wine Kits, weekly featured oyster & wine pairings. You’ll also have the chance to win incredible raffle prizes and take part in our annual most beautiful oyster contest!! Visit Elliott’s Oyster New Year page to partake in the offerings.

As always, a portion of proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund, for which we are so grateful.

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery

Look for the Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery event to resurface down the line, hosted by Bainbridge Organic Distillers.  In past years, it has been a wonderful afternoon sampling local oysters and craft vodka cocktails. In addition to raw oyster service, oysters came off the grill with lemon, garlic and a touch of red pepper flake with deep fried oysters as the starring ingredient in a hearty chowder.

Puget Sound Restoration Fund provides 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 down the line!

Whiskies for Wildlife

Due to the pandemic, we had 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 later 2021. This event always sells out, so when it is next held, look to nab tickets around the first week of July.
