The Oyster Riot turns 25 this year, and we are celebrating this milestone in a big way. 
Join us as we celebrate this year with a new date and a new location:

Saturday, October 26, 2019, at The Bullpen at Nats Park.

The Atrium at the Old Ebbitt Grill where we have hosted the first 24 Riots is in the midst of a year-long renovation, so we are taking the Riot on the road this year!  We saw this as an opportunity to do something special and larger to help celebrate the Riot’s 25th birthday.  

After an extensive search, we found the perfect spot in The Bullpen at Nats Park!

In addition to all of the oysters and wines you have enjoyed over the years, The Bullpen will also allow us the opportunity to add some more fun elements including a great performance by the world-renowned New Orleans Suspects performing their “Tribal Gold” show.   

Other than that – you still get all the elements you love  – an all-inclusive oyster, wine, beer and music celebration or as we like to call it – A Riot!

There will be two sessions on Saturday, October 26
Session 1: The Matinee – Noon to 3 pm
Session 2: Saturday Night – 7 pm to 10 pm
