Put March 10th on Your Calendar for Fun in Oriental

The Annual Chowder Cook Off, sponsored by the Oriental Woman’s Club, will be held on March 10th, from 11:30 to 1:30 just around the corner from our waterfront hotel. Grab your significant other and come enjoy an unseasonably mild winter while you spoon up some of the best tasting chowder around. Proceeds from the event help provide scholarships to local high school students. The event takes place just around the corner from our hotel in Oriental and competition between the many cooks is stiff. From clam chowder to seafood chowder with every sea creature thrown into the mix, the chowder tasting is definitely the best deal in town.

And if you come down for the weekend, there’s lots more fun going on. The Farmer’s Market will be held beside the harbour on Saturday morning with their usual offerings from local artists, craftspersons and food vendors. Everything from freshly baked breads to pottery items to freshly laid eggs can be found at our intimate Farmer’s Market.

Since our weather has been so mild, why not take a boating trip while you’re here and enjoy our wide waters? Captain Jim Edwards from Bow to Stern Yacht Services will take your party out on the water where you can watch for dolphins or explore distant shores.

And on Saturday evening, at 7:30, the Old Theatre Corporation presents Marie Josee Lord in concernt. This award winning, nationally known Soprano will be in concert for a Sunday performance as well.
