It takes over 120 committed volunteers to make the Annual North Carolina Oyster Festival a success. Volunteers are needed the weekend before the event for our Annual Muddy Oyster run and the weekend of the event for the Road Race and the Oyster Festival itself. There are a variety of volunteer roles available from greeting visitors at the main gate to helping set-up and break down around the grounds to manning the Oyster Shucking and Oyster Eating contests and all of the other festival activities.

If you are passionate about Brunswick County and the impact of the North Carolina Oyster Festival on our community and have time and energy to donate, please consider joining us the weekend of October 20th through 22nd. All volunteers will receive a free tee shirt and admission into the festival.

We are currently working on an online Volunteer Registration, but if you can’t wait (and we don’t want you to!) then please call our office at 910-754-6644 to get on our Volunteer List!
