Fifth Annual Shuckin’ on the Strand Oyster Roast just around the corner (this weekend)

The fifth annual Shuckin’ on the Strand Oyster Roast, hosted by gsSCENE and presented by FSA Full Steam Ahead, Inc. will be held Saturday, Feb. 23, from 12-4 p.m. at the Hot Fish Club in Murrells Inlet.

The Shuckin’ on the Strand Oyster Roast is the Grand Strand’s largest oyster roast, open to the public, and served up oysters and barbecue to a sold-out crowd of over 500 attendees at last year’s event.

Attendance is limited and purchasing tickets in advance is recommended. The cost is $25 and ticket pre-sale is available online at Those that purchase their tickets online may pick them up at the start of the event at the Hot Fish Club. Tickets will also be sold at the door while supplies last, though pre-purchasing is recommended.

The cost of the ticket includes admittance to the event, all-you-can-eat-oysters (served between 12 and 4 p.m.) provided by Harrelson’s Seafood, two drinks and a plate of barbecue and side dishes prepared by Prosser’s BBQ. Entertainment at this year’s event will be provided outdoors by DJ Lex Diamond and special guest MB Country.

“This is the first time the entertainment will be provided outdoors where the oysters and food are served,” said gsSCENE spokesperson Shannon Furtick. “It’s always fantastic food and a fun group of people. The past four years, the event has been filled to capacity and we are hoping for the same turnout this year.”

The fifth annual Shuckin’ on the Strand Oyster Roast is presented by gsSCENE and FSA-Full Steam Ahead and sponsored by the Hot Fish Club, Prosser’s B.B.Q., Harrelson’s Seafood, Inlet Printing Company, and Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
